Intel today announced it's now shipping a new processor designed specifically for tablets and hybrid devices, including those from Evolve III, Fujitsu, Lenovo, Motion Computing, Razer, and Viiv. Intel also said it will give a sneak peak of its next-generation Intel Atom platform codenamed "Cedar Trail" at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in Beijing tomorrow.
Few would argue that Intel did a great job positioning its Atom processor platform as the de factor standard for netbooks. If you buy a netbook, chances are high it's sporting Intel inside. In the still emerging tablet market, however, Intel has some ground to make up, and pricing could end up holding the chip maker back.
