"Intel released a list of 11 tech predictions for next year, including "tablet mania," more smart TV offerings, the spread of "context-aware" devices, and "Minority Report"-like digital signs. Meanwhile, the chip giant's 2011 "Sandy Bridge" Core processors are reportedly already on sale in Malaysia.

"Intel's 2011 tech predictions were offered on the company's Technology@Intel blog by Bill Kircos (right), the company's PR director. He reports consulting with Chief Technology Officer Justin Rattner, Chief Information Officer Diane Bryant, plus both other company officials and industry analysts, to compile the list.

"Edited just slightly for length and formatting, but listed in Kircos' order, the tech predictions -- "a bit slanted toward Intel (shocker)" -- are as follows:

* 1. Smart TV experience gets real -- Expect a large number of TV, cable and other consumer electronics companies to join Comcast, Free, Sony, Logitech Boxee, and Cisco ... [in] ... the smart TV and video market. By the end of 2011, these companies should be able to gauge the consumer acceptance of smart TV -- does it sizzle or fizzle?"
