Intel Corporation has announced the creation of the Innovation Alliance. The announcement was supported by a number of Asian computing design companies including Asustek, Compal, FIC, Foxconn, Gigabyte, Inventec, MicroStar, Mitac, LG, Quanta, Samsung, and Wistron. Intel has released a number of guides intended to provide direction on the technologies and base features needed to deliver expected experiences to mainstream clients. The Desktop Platform Vision Guide, as the name suggests, focuses on the next generation of mainstream desktop platforms. The Mobile Platform Vision Guide describes next-generation mobility platforms, including notebooks in the thin-and-light, mini, sub, and mini/sub convertible categories. Initial product offerings based on the output from Innovation Alliance will be available in 2003.
