Intel has great ambitions for the tablet market as we all know. Its recent partnership with Rockchip is testament to that. The chip maker is now claiming that the company’s ATOM processors will be powering over 130 tablets this year which includes both Windows and Android. That’s a massive figure by any stretch of the imagination, although it’s yet to be seen as to how many of these are big ticket OEMs.
The company wants its chipsets to be running on over 40 million devices by the end of the year, which seems like a realistic target considering rumors of the upcoming Nexus tablet sporting its SoC. But Intel will be wary of the competition it faces from Qualcomm which is the single largest mobile SoC supplier in the world today.
Intel’s focus on the budget segment will help greatly with its cause as well. So it will be interesting to see where this new breed of chips will take Intel and whether its goals will come to fruition.
