Notebook makers not interested in Oak Trail

Posted on Sunday, January 16 2011 @ 00:45:17 CET by

Sources at laptop makers told DigiTimes that there isn't a lot of interest to adopt Intel's Oak Trail platform. The tablet makers see NVIDIA's Tegra 2 platform as the better option, and will reportedly wait until the launch of Intel's Cedar Trail-M platform in September 2011.
Because Acer and Asustek Computer have both shown their unwillingness to launch Oak Trail-based tablet PCs, Intel has recently been aggressively trying to persuade these vendors with price discounts and is hoping Asustek and Hewlett-Packard (HP), which are still undecided, will change their minds and fully support the platform, according to sources from notebook players.

Since Oak Trail has only been adopted by Fujitsu, Toshiba and Samsung Electronics for their tablet PCs and these vendors are not showing an aggressive attitude to mass produce models, while HP, which originally planned to launch an Oak Trail-based tablet PC, also stepped back and is reevaluating its plans, Intel is offering Oak Trail at a price point of around US$40, about the same as Nvidia's Tegra 2, and the company will even give a further discount for large volume orders, the sources noted.
