May 25, 2007 Businessweek is reporting on a new laptop from Intel which is less than 0.7 inches thick – that’s just a quarter of an inch thicker than the Motorola Razr mobile phone (pictured alongside it in profile) and as such, easily qualifies as the world’s thinnest mobile phone. The radical laptop weighs just 2.25 pounds, and always-on Internet connectivity via various wireless technologies. Intel hasn't announced an official release date but people familiar with the matter say a PC maker will announce plans to start manufacturing the machine later this year.
