Intel Medfield smartphones tipped for 2011

A recent Intel presentation has tipped the company's upcoming Medfield processor as destined for smartphones, rather than merely as the Atom replacement for netbooks and MIDs that the CPU has so far been assumed.  Intel expect "mainstream smartphones" using the 32nm Medfield in 2011, with the processor's smaller board size and reduced standby power both making it suitable for compact devices.
