DigiTimes writes Intel is unlikely to meet its goal of shipping 40 million tablet processors in 2014. The company's Cherry Trail-based processors have been delayed from November to Q1 2015 and some market watchers believe that despite giving hefty subsidies to adopters, Intel won't ship more than 30 million units in 2014.
The release of the 14nm Cherry Trail-based processors was originally slated for the third quarter to help boost Intel's tablet processor shipments for 2014, but the company has twice rescheduled its release, first to November and now to first-quarter 2015, the sources said.

Intel has been giving subsidies to brand vendors for its tablet processors and Asustek Computer is currently the largest adopter of its CPUs. Intel has also been helping China white-box players adopt its processors for their devices.
