PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Several Android tablets running on Intel Clover Trail+ Atom processors broke cover at Computex Taiwan. Intel's dual-core, 1.6GHz Atom Z5260 is fueling a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 tablet, as well as Asus's 6-inch Fonepad Note and 10-inch MemoPad FHD10 tablets, while Asus also unveiled a hybrid 11.6-inch Transformer Book Trio, combining an Android slate based on a 2GHz dual-core Atom Z2580 with a keyboard dock running Windows 8 on an Intel Haswell processor."

I seriously hope these intel androids fail. They will dramatically increase the fragmentation problem. 5% of apps don't work? That is way too many.

Also, I'm bored with Intel and am hoping for the entire Intel/Microsoft ship to sink when Android hybrids eviscerate laptop sales.

This play by Intel is *high stakes*. They see where things are headed: Win8 is a failure, tablets/phones are taking over and could spread like wildfire to hybrids and all laptops within a couple years if MS doesn't do something ASAP. If that happens, and Android remains 100% ARM, Intel could implode. I think Intel realizes this isn't just a simple play to make more money, this is life or death for them.
