"Neither Intel nor AMD can get into Android tablets to any significant degree. Both are pretty much locked of this area. There are many Windows 7 tablets using x86 processors, but Windows 7 wasn't designed for tablets. Windows 7 won't really give you the true tablet experience you get with, say, an iPad or the HTC Flyer."
Locked out??? Where have you been?
Intel introduced 35 tablet designs at Computex, including Android. And the continuous waves of new fabrication will improve their penetration into the tablet market.
In the meantime, Intel has the Windows 7 tablet market to itself.
And one of the problems with that "true tablet experience" you promote is that there are so many things it is incapable of...
PS. Then new Mac Air, with Intel Inside, is cannibalizing tablets at a rate of 6 million a year.
