    Jigsaw puzzle falls into place - Intel Bay Trail Tablets with built-in LTE

    Voice: Check

    Internet Surfing, Content Consumption, Entertainment, Lite gaming: Check

    Intel Media/TV business: Consumption anytime, anyplace - Check

    Carrier deals: High volumes, large fab capacity in place - To be announced

    ASUS Fonepad the first device of this kind.
    Probably many, many, more Tablets and Convertibles with built-in LTE to follow.

    • I agree. Intel already said they will be shipping the multi-mode XMM 7160 later in the year (this was from MWC), so should be available for Haswell, Bay Trail launch. Things are definitely coming to together. Maybe Intel can do a promotion like - buy an Intel tablet, get 1 free month of Intel TV.

      • I think we are going to see all types of deals with discounted pricing from carriers and other players just like smartphones:
        - convertible/detachable hybrids with a wide range of screen sizes
        - built-in LTE
        - voice over IP (Skype, Vonage, etc.)
        - discounted contract-pricing by carriers and other large players (could include Google, Amazon,
        Microsoft, Best Buy, Walmart, etc. (a lot of them may be reselling LTE from AT&T, Verizon,
        Sprint/Clearwire, T-Mobile/Metro PCS)
        - mobile anywhere/anyplace TV from Intel

        Complete packages (hardware, LTE, TV including cable channels) should generate a lot of interest from people who like to consume content on-the-go.
