Intel promoting Android convertible laptops

DigiTimes reports Intel has begun to stimulate development of Android tablet-convertible notebooks. The move is a reaction to the booming demand for Android tablets and the failure of Windows 8 to revigorate the PC market. The chip giant believes around $500 is the price sweet spot of Android-based notebooks, and believes these machines need detachable keyboard designs so they can transform into a tablet.
Viewing that Windows 8 has been unable to stimulate global demand for notebooks, and global sales of Android tablets have been increasing, Intel has begun to promote Android tablet-convertible notebooks, and China-based vendor Lenovo has taken the initiative to launch initial models in May while Hewlett-Packard (HP), Toshiba, Acer and Asustek Computer will launch models in the third quarter, according to sources from notebook vendors.

Lenovo's Android-based Yoga notebook, set for release in May, is expected to feature an 11-inch display, the sources noted.
