Intel: $200 Android-based Atom and $399 Windows 8 Core systems on the way

Neowin reports Intel revealed that Android-based tablet/laptop devices with the "Bay Trail" Atom processor should arrive later this year for around $200. Additionally, the firm also revealed it's pushing to have their mainstream Core lineup available in Windows 8 devices as low as $399 to $499.
According to Intel Chief Product Officer Dadi Pelmutter, the availability of cheap Windows 8 tablets depends on the price points that Microsoft makes Windows 8 available to OEMs. Pelmutter said that Intel has "good technology that enables a very cost-effective price point", but Microsoft's license costs for Windows 8 means that there will likely be "a slightly higher price point" for Windows 8 laptops.

It was also mentioned that Intel is pushing to have their mainstream Core line-up available in devices as low as $399 to $499, with the Atom range filling out the price points below and up to that. Intel is also working on incorporating multi-mode LTE radios into application processors by 2014, while a data-only multi-mode LTE chip will launch mid-year.
