CNET received details about Intel's checklist for Windows 8 tablets. It seems Intel will push its Atom Z2760 "Clover Trail" for these devices, a dual-core with performance burst-mode and Hyper-Threading.
Two basic tablet designs: The tablets themselves, as proposed by Intel, fall into two basic sizes: pure 10-inch tablets and hybrid 11-inch designs with physical keyboards.
Battery life: More than nine hours. That's just on paper of course. So, final products will tell the real story.
3G/4G: That's a must for tablets, of course. And Intel bought the wireless business of a little chip company called Infineon. So it can supply its own silicon here if necessary.
Weight/thickness: Under 1.5 pounds. No surprise here. The gen 3 iPad is 1.44 pounds, by the way. Thickness, as proposed, is under 9mm. Again, as a yardstick, the gen 3 iPad is 9.4mm.
Miscellaneous: NFC (near field communication) and Wi-Fi Direct.
