intel logoWhile Intel is busy pushing its next-generation Cedar Trail chips for netbooks and tablets, the company also has a lower power chip code-named Medfield which is designed for phones and tablets.

Mefield is a 32nm platform which Intel says is designed for fanless devices which weigh less than 1.5 pounds and which are less than 9mm (0.35 inches) thick. It uses significantly less power than the company’s current chips.

At a Computex event this week Intel showed off a Medfield design running Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb for the first time. The company says the platform will support MeeGo Linux as well.

Devices based on the Medfield platform are expected to ship in the first half of 2012.
