Intel flat out on Windows 8 tablets

Written by Nick Farrell



Has deals with 10 vendors


Intel has admitted that it is working with 10 undisclosed Chinese and global vendors to design Windows 8 tablets using the company's chips. Intel China chairman Sean Maloney told the  Intel Developer Forum in Beijing that there will be many Intel-based tablets by the end of this year.

The tablets will use the Z2460 code-named "Medfield" which has been built for smartphones and tablets. Chinese PC maker Lenovo's has already said it will be releasing the K800 handset which will be the first smartphone to use an Intel processor. This will be sold in China at the end of May. Intel is also developing Clover Trail, which is designed for tablets and is scheduled to arrive this year. The chip features a 1.8 GHz processor.
ZTE also plans to launch a smartphone using Intel chips during the second half of this year.

Maloney said that Chipzilla was developing two other Atom chips for smartphones. The Intel Atom Z2580 will offer twice the performance of the Medfield chip. The Atom Z2000 has a 1.0 GHz processor and is positioned for the lower end of the market.
