Intel is ready to announce its next-generation Bay Trail-T platform at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) taking place in San Francisco from September 10-12. Asustek Computer, Acer and Lenovo will also showcase their latest Bay Trail-T-based tablets, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.
Bay Trail-T-based tablets are expected to start selling in retail channels worldwide in late-October, the sources said.
Some PC players believe the Bay Trail-T platform will help Intel gain an equal footing against its competitors. If Microsoft is also willing to drop its Windows 8.1 licensing fees, it will allow the next-generation Wintel tablets to become more competitive, the sources noted.
Intel’s Bay Trail-M-based processors including Pentium N3510 and Celeron N2910/N2810/N2805, will enter mass production in the near future with related notebook products to show up in November or December, the sources added.
