Over 20 Windows 8 Intel Atom tablets in the works
Windows 8 tablets might be a lot about ARM arriving on Microsoft’s platform, but Intel’s Atom processors would still be hugely important for the launch. How huge? Let’s only mention that over 20 tablet designs with Clover Trail Atom chips are in the works.

Intel’s Paul Otellini spoke at the conference call after the chip maker announced $2.8 billion in profits and $13.5 billion in revenue for the past quarter.
