According to Intel, the company is working with Google to bring Android 3.0 Honeycomb to devices running Intel’s Oak Trail chips. The single-core chips will run at 1.5 GHz and be powered by a PowerVR SGX535 graphics core. Intel admitted that Oak Trail chips are not as good as ARM chips at power consumption, but that the company plans to compete better as chips get smaller and faster.
Around 35 tablets running Intel’s Oak Trail chips are expected to be shown this week at the Intel Developer Forum in Beijing. Companies like Lenovo, Fujitsu, Samsung and Motion Computing, Kircos will be showing their devices at the show, with devices running Oak Trail expected to become available around May of this year. I’m not so sure I’d choose Intel chips over Nvidia’s Tegra 2, especially with Tegra 3 in the horizon. But to each its own, are any of you guys interested in a tablet powered by this chip?
