Intel Intel says its Medfield chip, designed for low-end smartphones, is in production and will ship later this year. Tablets using Intel's Oak Trail chips will ship this year, before Medfield will appear in products. According to Intel's Ultra Mobility Group, Medfield will have the fastest processor on the market, the same standby time as chips from competitors and the longest active power use time of any chip.

We can expect samples of the new chips to start appearing in Q2 2011 in single and dual-core models. Quad-core Snapdragons won’t arrive until 2012.
That means the first device will arrive on market in 2013 or so.

The first device with Quad core Cortex-A9 will be Sony NGP what should arrive at january 2012.

ARM-crowd announce their products before they ever have something to show, in contrast to Intel with announce date close to product launch.
