Cedar Trail M atoms to support Chrome

by on23 August 2011

As well as Windows or MeeGo

It looks like there will be a few options for the new Cedar Trail M, 32nm new generation Atoms, and the system will support at least two more Operating systems apart of the usual Windows 7.

Atom N2800 and N2600 based machines will also support Google Chrome, but we are not too sure that consumers are overly excited about that. It’s nice operating system, but Google needs to do much more in order to make this OS matter. There also will be  some support for the dying MeeGo operating system as Intel doesn’t want to give up its newborn, despite the fact that its step mother Nokia ran away with more attractive Microsoft, all because of the Windows Phone platform.

Fast flash standby is a nice feature that will make netbooks boot in a second, but we are not sure if all of these operating systems can cope with this. Also, we are sure that its designed for Windows 7 as well as Intel Wireless display, wireless music or taplink’s PC sync option.

Let's not forget that Intel plans to give more effort to Intel AppUp and give it a bigger push, but we are not too sure that this 35.3 MB download can make things much better for Intel. It is certain that Android Market and iTunes are doing much better.

If Digitimes got things right, netbooks with new 32nm Atoms are expected to come in November, and we will see how it goes from there. It is certain that they will all have keyboards and that they usually cost less than any decent Android 3.0 or Apple iOS based keyboard less tablet.
