Intel hasn’t revealed much about its plans for a new devices unit, but we do know that Mike Bell, a former Apple executive, will head up the new Smart Devices Unit. Bell last worked at Apple in 2007 and then went over to Palm after that. Most recently he has been co-leading Intel’s mobile chip business.
The new division will look at new technologies and product trends, including ultra-mobile products, Intel explained. “The group will be tasked with turning cool technology and business model innovations into products that shape and lead markets” the chipmaker told AllThingsD. Intel didn’t have much more to say about the new unit.
The mobile chip unit will now be run by Hermann Eul, who had been co-leading it will Bell. These new changes in the company are part of a larger series of organizational changes that are being made by Brian Krzanich, the company’s new CEO.
