Intel Announces Plans To Develop Two Different-Sized Windows 8 Tablets

Posted Apr 13, 2012

Intel announced at a conference in Beijing that they will have two sizes of Windows 8 tablets with 3G/4G connections and will have Atom processors. One of the tablets will have a 10-inch model and the other will be an 11-inch hybrid with a physical keyboard. Inside of it will be a dual code Atom Z2760 Clover Trail chip with a “burst mode” that allows for short periods of high level performance. They will also come with a nine-hour battery, NFC, and WiFi Direct. WiFi Direct allows devices to connect to each other without a traditional network. The tablets will be under 1.5 pounds and less than 9mm thick.
