Top five topics at IDF 2010

After attending Intel's annual conference in San Francisco, we run down the top five trends on the lips of the delegates.

The final notable push of IDF 2010 was around applications for netbooks.

Back in February at Mobile World Congress, Intel announced the beta release of AppUp, an app store designed for the portable devices that had proved popular for their easy transportation and long battery life.

This week saw the AppUp store come out of beta and major partnerships were confirmed globally, most notably for us with Dixons in the UK.

We were told by Peter Biddle, head of AppUp products and services at Intel, the AppUp store was very "consumer centric."

However, he concluded: "If you look at a lot of those apps, you can find a distinct number are productivity apps as well... so we certainly see [the business market] as a potential future."
