DigiTimes writes Intel expects shipments of notebook processors will almost double by 2011:
Since Intel launched its Centrino platform in 2003, shipments have grown from 38 million notebook CPUs in the first year to 79 million in 2006. In 2007, shipments surpassed 100 million units, and in 2008, with the help of the Montevina platform, the company expects shipments to reach 123 million units.

Over the next few years shipments are forecast to continue growing to hit 145 million, 169 million and 195 million units in 2009 to 2011, respectively.

In 2008, Intel will push into WiMAX with plans to support the wireless technology in its Montivina and MID (mobile Internet device) platforms, according to sources at notebooks makers.

Intel will launch several networking products: a Wi-Fi/WiMAX mixed wireless module 5350/5150 (3x3 AGN MC) codenamed Echo Peak, a Wi-Fi only module 5300/5100 (3x3 AGN MC/HMC) codenamed Shirley Peak, 82567LF Gigabit LAN codenamed Boazman and 82567LM Gigabit LAN for digital office applications in the second quarter this year along with Montevina, noted the sources.
