Posted: January 10, 2010 in Tech

Intel Corp. at Consumer Electronics Show demonstrated its so-called wireless display technology that allows connecting personal computers to displays or HDTV-sets equipped with a special adapter wirelessly via 802.11n network.

Personal computers featuring Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6200, Advanced-N +WiMax 6250 or Ultimate N 6300 coupled with Intel My WiFi technology and Intel wireless display software can transfer video information, including high-definition video, to special Netgear adapters that can be connected using HDMI to high-definition televisions. Personal computers equipped with the aforementioned Wi-Fi adapters as well as Intel’s new Core i3, Core i5 or Core i7 processors compatible with LGA1156 platform will be compatible with Intel’s wireless display tech.

Google has hinted that they are already working on the next edition of Nexus One.

Nexus One enterprise model would be aimed at the corporate customers and could include a physical keyboard.

Hewlett-Packard and Asus have both launched laptops with USB 3.0 ports. USB 3.0 is much faster than the previous standard USB 2.0.

USB Implementers Forum claims that a 25GB HD movie can be transferred in just 70 seconds through USB 3.0. In comparison USD 2.0 would take almost 14 minutes to do the same.
