Intel is expected to sell about 30 million tablet processors next year and seize up to a tenth of the market. Industry watchers believe Intel will ship a total of 10 million tablet parts in 2013.
Although this does not sound bad considering Intel’s current standing in the mobile space, it is still somewhat lower than the original forecast of 40 million units. It appears that demand for Windows 8.1 tablets powered by Bay Trail-T parts is not as high as it could have been.
However, the first Android products based on Bay Trail-T are expected by the end of the year, or in January 2014, Digitimes reports. However, Intel does not appear to have any orders from first-tier Android vendors at this point. They are still sticking with ARM cores.
