Intel-Windows 8 tablets to arrive in November

Tools

Windows 8 tablets running on Intel's upcoming Clover Trail processor are slated to arrive in November this year. Clover Trail is the chip company's first dual-core Atom chip based on its 32-nanometer process. Citing "a source familiar with device makers' plans," a CNET report noted that more than half of the new designs will be an ultrabook-tablet hybrid, which is similar to what Intel demonstrated in April.

The source did not address Windows 8 devices that are based on the higher-performance Ivy Bridge microprocessor or devices based on the ARM processor. The predominant device format for these machines is likely to be that of standard laptops.

Windows 8 looks set to be the largest upgrade to Windows yet, given the extensive number of changes being made to it, on top of the fact that, for the first time, it will also run on the ARM platform. At a time when the tablet market continues to see many millions of iPads sold each month and computer makers scrambling to release their own tablets, Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) has decided to hedge by incorporating a tablet-friendly interface into the Windows 8.

As of now, Microsoft has yet to announce any official dates for the release of Windows 8, though it is widely expected to be launched in October or November.
