New modem announced at MWC, and expect more device launches in 2016, exec Aicha Evans says.
Aicha Evans is not happy. Or, rather, she's not satisfied. Not in the least. Spend any time with the Intel exec — she's got a couple long titles, but they boil down leading modems and handsets — and you get the sense that she's generally an upbeat person.

We've reviewed the ASUS Zenfone 2. We've seen the phone's launch in North America. And you can now purchase the ZenFone 2 for a completely reasonable price of $299. (Or even a little less if you want to skimp on the specs.)
But that's really just the start of the story for ASUS, which is teaming up with Intel for this new Atom-based phone. There are a lot of firsts here for both companies....
Intel CEO Brian Krzanich showed off a version of its RealSense 3D depth camera this week that is small enough to be put inside a 6-inch smartphone.
