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.

Except Nokia tablets are in fact commercially successful

No they're not, and there are no sales figures to support that in any way, shape or form.


Actually, you haven't given any figures to show they are not commercially successfule, just as the previous poster had not demonstrated that they were.

Anyone have any facts on this?

So far, in my not-very-humble opinion, sub/micro/nano/etc devices like this have not been very successful. I would like somebody to succeed. How successful was the Toshiba Libretto?

BTW, how's that Microsoft micro-notebook going? I haven't heard much about it in a long time.

I have. The last estimate was around 25,000 units sold (see the link), and there has been no word on it since. If you have some spectacular sales figures for Nokia's tablets, again, I'm all ears. You ain't going to find any though.
