Intel develops Windows 8 devices

By the end of 2012, Intel Corporation plans to launch 20 tablet models running Microsoft Windows 8. The devices will be equipped with Intel Atom processors (Clover Trail platform). This was stated today as part of a report to investors by Paul Otellini, CEO of Intel.

In addition to tablets, the company is currently developing ultrabooks based on Windows 8 in the amount of about 140 models (of which more than 40 will be touch—sensitive and a dozen will be transformable). Thus, users will be able to choose between the power and autonomy of the devices. According to Otellini, some of them will cost from $699. Some of the new models should already be on the market this fall. 

As for Intel’s financial report for the second quarter of 2012, due to a 12.5% decline in profit to $2.8 billion, the company had to lower its revenue forecast for the entire current year. By the end of 2012, Intel expects revenue growth of only 3-5%.
