Intel Expects Atom “Bay Trail-T” Based Tablets to Cost $150 or Less.
“We believe what [Bay Trail platforms] really does it allows us to get into these markets that we are not in, in a big way today. [There will be] tablets [at] $199 and below, some you are going to see even lower, below $150 and much below that as we go through the holiday season. So, Bay Trail, really first and foremost we believe gives solid performance, solid battery life relative to the competition in price points and markets that were simply not in, in a big way today,” said Brian Krzanich, chief executive officer of Intel, during quarterly conference call with financial analysts.
Intel will officially launch Atom processor Z-series for Bay Trail-T platforms designed for tablets between August 28, 2013, and September 13, 2013, according to an excerpt from an Intel document published earlier this month.
