Taking a closer look at the names of the companies providing consumers with tablets in the booming market, one or two names are either completely missing or far behind. Intel is one of them but wants to catch up quick. The company now stated with a release of “more than ten new tablets”, which will be introduced at Computex later this month, it is hoping to break back into the market it once dominated.
Navin Shenoy, Intel general manager for Asia Pacific, stated: “more than 35” tablets equipped with Intel chipsets are on the roadmap and planned to ship this year. Intel chief Paul Otellini already confirmed MeeGo, Windows, and Android tablets being introduced at Computex later this month. “We’re heads down on a number of designs on tablets on all three of those operating systems,” he added. Just imagine it: Honeycomb on an Oak Trail tablet. Computex kicks off on May 31st. We’ll keep you updated.
