Intel to ship Celeron and Pentium chips for Android devices

CNET received word that Intel will use Celeron and Pentium names for some of its Atom processors for Windows and Android devices:
Intel's Atom is getting a makeover. In more ways than one. First, when Intel speaks to customers internally about micro-architectures, Atom is out, Silvermont is in, Intel told CNET on Friday. Second, some upcoming Silvermont silicon will be branded Pentium and Celeron -- which is the value end of Intel's Core-based mainstream chips.

The chipmaker's reasoning is that some variants of Silvermont now offer performance comparable to current mainstream Celeron and Pentium. That's quite different from the Atom of old, which had a reputation -- particularly in Netbooks -- for being slow. Higher performance varieties of Silvermont will also ship with PC-like attributes such as PCI and SATA.
