Intel launches marketing makeover
The new Intel corporate logo
Intel is changing its logo for the first time in 37 years
Intel, the world's biggest chipmaker, will launch a new corporate slogan next week as part of a major rebranding.

The "Intel Inside" phrase is out, and the company will now encourage consumers to "Leap Ahead".

Intel will also change its logo, replacing the one featuring a lowered "e" with one showing an oval swirl surrounding the company name.

The firm wants to re-position itself as providing the technology behind many digital products, not just PCs.

Intel chief executive Paul Otellini is set to unveil the details of the new marketing campaign on 5 January at the giant gadget festival, the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

According to the Interbrand consultancy, Intel is the world's fifth most valuable brand, worth an estimated $36bn (21bn).
