Intel plans sub-$100 tablets

IDF 2013: Partner based, end of 2013

Intel’s new CEO Brian Krzanich just said that tablets based on Intel silicon, most likely Bay Trail based Atom, can ship before the end of the year in the sub-$100 category.

This is definitely a popular market and Intel has a good chance, just as good as Google had with the $199 Nexus 7 last year. People like great products that don’t cost an arm and leg.

He didn’t go into specifics about the specs but he showed a Lenovo product that might be it. We will know more later this year. The whole keynote seemed like a big show of what Intel can do and that it can do it quickly. Many punters are losing confident in Intel, but the company stresses it can execute well and innovate in the years to come.

Intel has ignored the ARM treat for too long and it is having a hard time adjusting, seizing a bit of that phone and tablet market that the ARM alliance silently conquered over the last few years.

A sub-$100 tablet gives them a good fighting chance, let’s wait for the specs and hope that they are decent, with a 720p at least, and with decent performance
