AMD takes a Wait and See approach for UMPCs

Microsoft’s latest “Origami” hand held device was built together with Intel’s collaboration. Intel’s arch rival, AMD, says that they’ll be taking a “wait and see” approach to this new type of device. AMD Taiwan had commented recently that there’s still a couple of barriers of entry to this new platform. Taiwanese manufacturers are hinting that AMD might use their mobile CPUs like the Turion 64, or even their Geode – a CPU made for embedded devices, for these UMPC platforms.
