Toshiba, Dell, and Fujitsu are among the big names readying Windows-based devices, while Lenovo and Asus are preparing both Windows and Android slates. AT&T and Cisco are also developing Android tablets, while Acer and others plan to ship MeeGo products.
With some 35 design wins under its belt, the New York Times reports that Intel has quietly formed a new business unit simply called the "netbook and tablet group," which will be led by the current head of Intel's embedded and communications group, Douglas L. Davis.
In addition to sharing Intel's early success in the tablet segment, Otellini also announced that the company's smartphone-class Atom processor, codenamed Medfield, has been delayed. The chip is in customer sampling and should appear in devices sometime mid-2011.
