Intel CEO Paul Otellini sees Windows 8 touch devices powered by the "Bay Trail" processor, including laptops and tablets, dropping as low as $200. These devices could be ready by the third quarter, when the (heaven help us) chip will ship. It is all about getting a Windows 8 tablet, with its ability to run desktop applications, to the same price point where a ton of 7 inch Android tablets reside. Currently, the low end of the Windows 8 tablet sector is priced at about $430.
"Bay Trail is going to be a great product in that segment of the market and enable stunning performance relative to what the competition can bring."-Stacy Smith, Intel CFO
