Intel set to introduce at least 10 tablets at Computex 2011
As the Computex Taipei expo in Taiwan nears, more facts are beginning to pour in regarding what we should expect this coming May 31st through June 4th. According to the Wall Street Journal, Intel will be bringing in at least 10 new tablets for the upcoming tradeshow for a possible release later this year.
Further details regarding the tablets are still unknown, but Electronista believes that Intel’s current Oak Trail series of processors will power the wide range of tablets. Hopefully, the hardware manufacturers will be able to better differentiate their respective Atom-based tablets from the crowd. Sony, for example, will have a unique design for its own recently announced S1 tablet, so there is a chance that more manufacturers will bring something unique to the tablet market as well.
A couple of months ago, we reported that Intel will be releasing 35 different Atom-based tablets throughout 2011. The 10 tablets the chipmaker currently has planned for Computex could therefore just be the tip of the iceberg from Intel. Tablets were all the rage at CES earlier this year, and this trend may very well continue throughout Computex 2011.
