Intel CEO Paul Otellini revealed Atom has scored 35 tablet design wins for 2011 and that the first Atom-based phones will arrive in the second half of 2011. These smartphones will be based on Medfield, the successor to the Moorestown chip.
Smartphones with Intel silicon inside them would now appear in the second half of 2011, said Mr Otellini.
On tablets, the chief executive said Intel now had 35 design wins, meaning manufacturers were including its Atom processors and chipsets in 35 different products. He said these were based on Windows, its own Meego operating system and Android, including the forthcoming Honeycomb version adapted for tablets.
Consumer products would appear in the first half of next year, he said, with its Moorestown processor appearing in the thinnest and lightest tablets and the higher performance “Oak Trail” Atom processor destined for Windows-based tablets.
