Intel 7 inch tablet designed for education in emerging markets
We recently told you about the low-priced Aakash Android tablet designed for classrooms in India and possibly destined for Philadelphia schools as well. According to DigiTimes, Intel has entered into the educational tablet market with a higher-priced model of its own. The 7 inch screen offers an aspect ratio of 16:9 and resolution of 1024 x 600. The tablet supports a dual operating system which means both Windows and Android are enabled. A 2MP camera is on the back while a .3MP shooter is on the front. 1GB of DDR2 RAM is on board and the tablet is available in 4GB, 8GB, 16GB and 32GB variants. The site quotes industry sources as saying that the price for the tablet will run in the $200-$300 range depending on specs and customs tariffs.

According to DigiTimes' sources,
Elitegroup Computer Systems in Taiwan and Walinda in China have started production of the tablet with shipments expected to increase sharply in the second half of the year. The industry sources also said that Intel will release its Medfield processors for Android in 2012 and 2013 while the Windows 8 specific Clover Trail-W platform will be launched this September or October.

Having used Intel hardware for years, I'm sure they can produce a decent tablet.
