Intel Edison bites the dust – No more in IoT space

Has Intel finally thrown in the towel in the IoT space? Earlier this year, Intel announced that it will discontinue their IoT platforms namely, Galileo, Joule, and Edison. We wrote about Edison when it came out with the promise of really taking on the IoT space head on. However, it failed to create the momentum that was needed to take off. Alas, it never happened and Intel Edison bites the dust.

Raspberry Pi IoT devices have been imitated by others and numerous clones exist in the market. But many of these imitators do not seem to last long. Like Intel, they bite the dust when they lose momentum. We recently covered CHIP computer, which too is suffering from inability to build and ship their US$10 computer on a board to customers. Many such stories abound.

Can Intel’s Edison jump-start Wearable Computing?

Intel Edison Micro (SD Sized) computer is different. Significantly different from its predecessors. And not just in size but in how it is being packaged together.

For one, it supports Linux out of the box and not Windows. It subtly points to the direction Intel is progressing towards slowly. A world without Windows.

Edison is powered by the next generation of Atom processors, called Quark. Which Intel boasts consumes a tenth the power of Atom processor and is only one-fifth the size of its predecessor.
