Intel’s chips power every type of computer, but until now have never cracked the smartphone industry. Lenovo is making the first Intel-powered smartphone, while Motorola works on a future smartphone and tablet. Devices powered by Intel’s Atom chip will be available later this year. In other news, after much speculation, Sony announced it wouldn’t unveil the PlayStation 4 at this year’s E3 Expo. The PlayStation 3 was built to have a 10-year shelf life and Sony won’t rush out a new console any time soon. PS3 is still wildly popular, selling millions of units worldwide. And finally, Ford’s SYNC AppLink lets drivers use voice activated smartphone apps in their car. Ford announced that now, SYNC owners can download iHeartRadio and listen to over 800 radio broadcasts in their car. You can download the app from the iTunes, BlackBerry and soon, Android marketplaces.
