Intel plans to phase out Centrino & Core 2 Duo chips

The firm said on Wednesday that it will stop using “Centrino” to refer to personal computers beginning next year. Instead, it will use the brand to refer to WiFi- and WiMAX-based wireless products. It also said it would phase out sub-categories of its Core brand, such as “Core 2 Duo.” “We have a complex structure with too many platform brands,,” Intel spokesman Bill Calder wrote on a blog.
