"Intel hopes the next generation of smart, wearable devices will be powered by Edison, its 22mm Quark-based computer housed in a SD card form factor. Available in the middle of 2014, Krzanich said he believes Edison will "enable rapid innovation and product development.""

Jessica, it's a smart and advanced movement from Intel. They lost the bus for Mobile chip marketing to ARM because of its late entry. I think to avoid such pit falls; Intel is announcing their plans well in advance for IoT.
