    More Bay Trail devices leaking out


    We have heard news of a Bay Trail Samsung tablet/hybrid device in the news the last couple days. Now the above link shows Acer and Dell both having Bay Trail device offerings. Lenovo should also have 1 or more Bay trail devices of their own.

    Asus, being a close Intel partner, will undoubtedly, have Bay Trail device(s) as well. Recent news articles point to Asus as maker of the next Nexus 10 tablet. My guess is it will have Bay Trail inside. The reason is if Asus uses Bay Trail, they can build one hardware design, that can run both Android and Windows. Since Nexus products are really quite low margin; using Bay Trail will allow them to sell the tablet to Windows crowd too, allowing them to make up the profit thru volume.

    Samsung most likely won't bid for the Nexus 10 because they already have a successful tablet brand with the Galaxy Note 10". They would want to refresh it with their Exynos SoC and a 2560x1600 screen.

    • What's the maximum resolution of Bay Trail in tablet form factor? I saw a video on youtube that showed a demo notebook running 2560x1600, but the Bay Trail reference designs shown at Computex were running 2560x1440.

      As much as I would like to see Intel getting the Nexus 10, I just don't see that happening. It's more likely to run the Snapdragon 800.

      From the looks of it, I see Bay Trail getting into Windows 8 devices with the usual partners. No high profile Android devices. And there's been leaks of pictures of the upcoming Nokia tablet running Windows RT, which is a big disappointment.

      Acer Going Forward With Intel Powered Atom Bay Trail 10-inch Tablet Named WT5

      There isn’t just one rumor referring to what Acer has in store in terms of new releases for this year. The manufacturer seems to have prepared a number of devices of different sizes for the budget and mid-end category. There is still no word about when any of these might be available.

      One rumor that seems most interesting in regards to Acer’s plans concerns the upcoming tablet in the 7-inch category that will arrive at the same price as the current model – the Iconia B1. However this new tablet will offer better specs and maybe an improvement in terms of design and overall feel.

      Another fact that has surfaced is the fact that Acer may be preparing to announce a high-end device codenamed WT5. This tablet is powered by the new generation Intel Atom – Bay Trail chipset that should be able to deliver very good performance. On top of that the 10-inch Full HD LCD IPS 1920 × 1080 pixels display should look stunning and there are also 2 GB of RAM for multitasking. Other specs include 64 GB of internal memory, 8 MP rear camera and 4G LTE connectivity.
