Sources at Taiwanese tablet supply chain firms told DigiTimes that Intel is helping vendors to release cheap tablets by offering new reference design for Android (RDA). These reference designs will focus on screen sizes of 7", 8" and 10" and promise to achieve price points of $79, $89 and $129, respectively:
The reference designs will be mainly equipped with Intel SoFIA processors, the sources said. Target retail prices for 10-inch LTE, 8-inch LTE and 7-inch 3G tablets will be below US$129, US$89 and US$79, the sources indicated. Taiwan-based ODMs Foxconn Electronics, Compal Electronics, Pegatron, Wistron and Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) will undertake production for the new RDAs, the sources said.

In particular, Intel will help China-based white-box tablet vendors tap markets in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Southeast Asia, the sources indicated.
