Intel Intel is developing its own take on the mini-tablet, with a new ultra-mobile PC platform to be announced at this week's Intel Developer Forum in Beijing. The big surprise? It's based on Linux. In the meantime, Intel announced new details of its forthcoming Santa Rosa PC platform, including a significant revision of the Core 2 Duo chip.

Nokia have also had a multipurpose tablet running Linux, and it has also largely been a commercial failure.

Except Nokia tablets are in fact commercially successful, that's why Intel is developing it's own mini-tablet, and HTC is going to enter this market too with Athena tablet communicator.
