Summary: Coming to Acer, Lenovo, and Toshiba systems “this holiday season”, Intel Pair & Share allows users to share videos and pictures from their smartphone or tablet PC while Intel Teleport Extender lets you read and respond to SMS messages from your laptop.

Intel will be launching their “Pair & Share” technology and Teleport Extender on Acer, Lenovo, and Toshiba systems “this holiday season”, according to Paul S. Otellini, president and CEO of Intel.

The two features allow supported smartphones and tablets to share video, picture, SMS messages, and call alert notifications to your PC.

During his keynote at Intel Developer Forum 2011 in San Francisco, Otellini said that going forward, computing needs to be engaging, consistent, and protected.

Speaking to his point of consistency, Otellini called for an on-stage demonstration of their Pair & Share technology and Teleport Extender.

Using smartphones and tablets, among them Intel’s own Medfield-based Android device, a Samsung Galaxy S Android smartphone, and an Apple iPhone 4, the different capabilities of Pair & Share and Teleport Extender were demonstrated.

It wasn’t clear whether other platforms such as BlackBerry, Symbian, and Windows Phone would be supported in future.

Intel Pair & Share allowed videos and photos on the smartphone or tablet to be played or shown on the PC, while Teleport Extender brought up notifications of new SMS messages received.

According to Intel, Teleport Extender will allow you to respond to messages, as well as get call alert notifications on your computer.

The write-up of the demonstration from Intel follows below.

As a result, individuals could get the information and entertainment they want anytime, anywhere — whether they are on their computer or smart phone, watching TV, in the car, or out shopping. Otellini demonstrated several new capabilities the will be available on Acer, Lenovo, and Toshiba systems later this holiday season called Intel Pair and Share and Intel Teleport Extender.
