Windows 8 is threatening to shake things up with its imminent arrival in the tablet arena. Er, depending on price.
In any case, there’ll be Intel and ARM-powered devices, and now we’re told to expect more than 20 of the former.
The figures come from an investor call, in which CEO Paul Otellini revealed there are essentially tons of Intel-fuelled devices on the way, including a whopping 140 Ivy Bridge-based ultrabooks.
Paul yelled: “We are tracking more than 20 Windows 8 tablet designs based on our low-power and low-cost Clover Trail Atom SOC, in addition to a number of Core-based tablets.”
We met the first wave of Windows 8 tablets at Computex in Taipei, displayed alongside the world’s finest booth babes.
Included in those 20+ Windows 8 tablets will be the Asus Tablet 810, with an 11.6in Super IPS display, 2GB of RAM, and 64GB internal storage.
There’s also the Asus Taichi, an interesting Windows 8-based laptop of sorts, with a tablet-style touch display on the back.
