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."

Usual locked down stuff.

I think that the sole reason to go for Intel in that case lies in performance. These atom processors outperform any currently deployed ARM on mobile space, and by a significant margin.

Good ol' raw performance in absolute numbers.

Watts per mips he will lose, i think. But perhaps (i didn't look at comparison for this specific processor) the phone/tablet manufacturers are staring to believe that the processing power gain offset the higher power drain.
