Intel expects tablets containing its upcoming Atom processor, code-named Bay Trail, will cost under $200, a company executive said Wednesday.
“We believe we can push it well below the $199 price point,” said Hermann Eul, vice president and general manager of Intel’s Mobile and Communications Group, during a news conference at Computex in Taipei.
This is a new low price for tablets with Intel processors. Intel has revised its projected tablet price several times, with the most recent being for tablets between $200 and $399. Now the pressure is on device makers to offer Intel-based tablets under $199.
