It’s been a while since we last posted about upcoming Windows 8 tablets slated for launch in the second half of this year.Earlier we reported about Dell,Asus and even HP for that matter planning on bringing the Windows 8 tablet along with Samsung.
According to recent reports from Digitimes two more biggies from the computer industry will be joining the league for the Windows 8 tablet in Q3 2012,Lenovo and Acer would probably bring the Intel’s Clover Trail platform based Windows 8 tablet in the later half of this year,if their upstream Supply Chain sources are to be believed.
According to the sources,
Intel is set to unveil its Medfield processor, designed specifically for Android-based smartphones and tablet PCs, in the first half of 2012. But as Medfield is eclipsed by ARM-based processors in terms of performance and power saving, PC players are putting more hope on Intel’s Clover Trail platform.
So it’s believed that the PC makers would bank on the Clover Trail platform to bring the Windows 8 tablets into the market which is currently held by Apple’s iPad in terms of tablet marketshare.So the launch of Windows 8 with multiple biggies like Dell,Acer,Lenovo,Samsung war of the Tablets is on the Horizon.
