Intel says tablets are no threat for netbooks

Posted on Wednesday, July 14 2010 @ 19:56:54 CEST by


Intel told investors it doesn't see tablets as a threat for netbooks, and that the company is confident that Atom-based tablets will compliment netbooks.
Although many analysts believe that tablets have all chances to compete directly against netbooks when it comes to content consumption, Intel Corp. still does not see tablets as a threat for netbooks. By contrast, the company believes that tablets will compliment netbooks and is also confident that Atom chips will be able to easily serve the emerging market.

“I have not changed my view on tablets in the last three or four months since the launch of the iPad. I think they are an additive category to the market, much like we saw netbooks being additive. […] At Computex last month, there were over 30 varieties of tablets shown based upon Atom configurations. The advantage of Intel in this segment is you can run a number of operating systems: Windows, Android, Chrome, you can run MeeGo or the other versions of Linux,” said Stacy Smith, chief financial officer of Intel, during the most recent conference call with financial analysts.
