    If Clover Trail Z2760 is delayed due to Microsoft certification, how come Acer Iconia W510 with Z2760 is shipping?

    Here is Anand Shimpi's (AxxxxTxch) take on the delay. This paragraph is an extract from their review today on Acer Iconia W510 which is a must-read for all Intel longs:

    Contrary to popular belief, driver problems aren’t what kept the first Atom Windows 8 tablets out of the market at launch. A bug (not related to power management) caught several months ago caused schedules to slip by about a month and a half. Depending on whose design the OEM followed (Intel’s or their own), the implementation of the fix could come quickly or would take a bit longer. In this case, Acer and Samsung found themselves on the right side of the fence. We’ve had Atom based Windows 8 tablets from both companies for weeks now.
