DigiTimes reports Intel anticipates sales of its tablet processors will reach 30 million units next year, which is lower than previously forecasted because demand for Windows 8.1 and Bay Trail-T tablets isn't as strong as expected.
Intel's tablet processor shipments for 2014 are expected to reach only 30 million units, accounting for about 10% of total tablet processor shipments and lower than the company's forecasted 40 million units as demand for Windows 8.1 and Bay Trail-T-based tablets are not as strong as expected recently, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.

Intel's Bay Trail-T processors for the Android operating system will be released at the end of December 2013 or in early January 2014, the sources said.
