Intel Executive Talks Ultrabook Form, Function

The folks at C|Net sat down with the director of Intel's Ultrabook group and talked about all things Ultrabook.

Question: Can you talk about some of the new technologies Intel is targeting?

Welch: We're looking at lithium polymer batteries, which are typically found in cell phones. So, the question is, how can we accelerate that process and what kind of implementation and economic hurdles stand in the way and how can we work with the ecosystem to overcome those and accelerate their adoption? The focal point for the lithium polymer industry is handhelds andtablets, but it's equally applicable [for Ultrabooks].
