The company yesterday announced that at its booth at MWC, it'll show off "a new dual-core, dual-graphics platform". Intel also plans to have Android-based handsets on display that will be running its Atom Z2420 platform — a low-powered, low-cost chip for smartphones designed for emerging markets.

Intel has been left behind in the mobile processor market. ARM, which develops chip architecture that's produced by a wide array of companies, has taken a huge chunk of the mobile processor market. Intel is, however, looking to make inroads into the mobile space, and has been making a serious push to achieve that goal.

In addition to smartphones, Intel plans to showcase Windows 8 tablets and convertibles running its processors.

Intel was a major presence at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) last month, and discussed its plans for both mobile and desktops through the remainder of the year. Intel has called 2013 "a game-changing year" for the company. A key component in making that happen is mobile.
