    Sony & HP tablets coming in the first half of 2013


    AMD demonstrated a Temash based tablet at Cebit and our first impression is that AMD has something pretty good to offer. Talking to AMD’s Sasa Marinkovic we learned that Temash based tablets are coming in the first half of 2013 and that AMD is working on dual- and quad-core Temash systems.

    Temash will come in AMD A6 and AMD A4 brands, while there is an extra sticker that might indicate that the tablet / hybrid notebook comes with a quad-core chip. AMD was clear that there won’t be any stickers on tablets, as tablet makers and consumers don’t really like stickers. People will just have to know that there is an AMD chip, inside just like some companies like Motorola and HTC don’t like to say that the chip inside their products comes from Qualcomm or some other partner.

    We saw a Compal pre-production unit that had a nice white finish, dockable keyboard with plenty of ports including HDMI, two USBs, SD, headphones as well as LAN. The tablet itself still had HDMI, SD and USB ports on the bottom, but these ports would be covered by the keboard dock, in the ultrathin notebook mode. The tablet looked thin, slick and nicely designed. Let’s hope that some OEMs will come up with similar designs.

    AMD has some strong OEMs on board, including Sony and HP

    Hopefully we will see some news soon on these.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
