Intel has big plans in large screen Android tablet space and we have already mentioned that there is a high end detachable device coming in 2015 based, on Broadwell and Skylake silicon.

In the $299 to $499 market Intel plans to offer Bay Trail-T or Bay Trail-M processors in 2014. It will transition to Cherry Trail, the next generation Atom, upon availability. According to Intel's plans the upgrade to the new platform processors will happen in 2015 and besides Cherry Trail Atoms, Intel plans to introduce this tablet version with Braswell Atom, a 14nm architecture for entry level systems.

This tablet has to be thinner than 10mm and it comes in detachable form. The reference screen size varies from 9.6 inches to 12.5 inches. The tablet comes with 4GB of RAM and it has 32GB or more storage.
