Windows 8 Tablets priced at $200? It's coming, says Intel's CEO

indows 8 Tablets priced at $200? It's coming, says Intel's CEO
Does your heart say "Yes, Yes" when you see a Windows 8 Tablet, but your wallet says "Are you kidding?" there is some good news on the way, courtesy of Intel. The silicon slinger is working on the next-gen Atom processor, a nifty little quad-core number code named "Bay Trail" which happens to double the computing power of the current chip while allowing for all-day battery life in a thinner size. By re-designing the micro architecture of the Atom chip, Intel is bringing it closer to the capabilities of your PC powering "Intel Inside" chip.

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.

If you like the idea of taking your office anywhere, by this upcoming holiday season you should be able to make both your heart and wallet happy.
