Intel says it's working on a new integrated I/O connectivity system for mobile devices that will consolidate various interfaces, including USB, FireWire and eSATA. Kevin Kahn, Intel senior fellow and director of Intel's communications technology lab, also said that the next-generation of mobile devices will have less built-in software and will feature more natural interfaces like speech and gesture recognition.
The effort is part of Intel's "Carry Small, Live Large" technology development plan, aiming to produce small, powerful mobile devices which are capable of offering multifaceted functionalities, Kahn noted.

In addition, Intel will also push for the adoption of 60GHz frequency high-speed wireless networking for short-range wireless connectivity compatible with Wi-Fi, WiMAX, 3G and UWB, to offer end-users with a seamless connectivity experience, Kahn added.
