Intel launches chipsets for Android all-in-one PC.....NO Windoze at all!!
Love it....another nail in M$'s coffin. Read it on The Register now, M$hills....
IDF13 Intel did its bit for the ongoing “tabletisation” of the desktop PC at its Developer Forum this week: it's encouraging engineers to get cracking on Android-powered “Smart Display” systems to go on sale in 2014.
The chip giant’s pitch is that these 17- to 21-inch devices - basically, huge tablets with a keyboard - will appeal to punters accustomed to using Android on phones and small slabs, and who want the same experience on a large machine that anyone at home can use.
In short, an all-in-one computer for web browsing, messaging and watching videos, all powered by Google's Linux-based Android operating system rather than something from Microsoft or Apple.
Intel reckons such systems will ship for between $300 and $400 (£189-£253) and insists that its new Bay Trail desktop platform is the ideal chipset to help vendors hit that price-point.
same old sh.t about no windows- been going on for decades now and the desperate haters and bashers go into ecstasy every time the least bit of news refers to intel and 'sux at the same time- course maybe you are elated because they are talking about sux-- often spelled sucks eh douchebag
It's actually Intel's reaction to Microsoft going with ARM (for WinRT) and AMD (for XBOX One). Microsoft finally got tired of waiting for Intel's slow progress in producing mobile chips. You can blame Intel for breaking up the partnership.
