AMD's Rick Bergman, senior vice president and general manager of products group, told analysts that tablets present a wonderful opportunity for AMD. Bergman says they've been struggling to get x86 into the living room and that tablets offer a way to accomplish this.
"Tablets present a wonderful opportunity for AMD. I have been in the PC industry for over twenty years; we really have struggled to get into the living room and it is clear that tablets are finding their way into the living room, a real consumer experience," said Rick Bergman, senior vice president and general manager of products group at AMD, during a conference with analysts.
Indeed, slate PCs can be used to check out schedules of TV programs, find interesting YouTube videos (so to beam them to HDTVs afterwards) or simply to keep up to date with news or emails while watching TV or playing games. Until the TV-sets will not get smart enough, tablets may be the smartest portable devices in the living rooms.
