Windows 8 tablets are heading our way in the second half of 2012. Sources over at DigiTimes claiming that both Acer and Lenovo will be launching Windows 8 tablets running Intel architecture in Q3 2012. The tablets are going to be running the upcoming Microsoft operating system and the Intel Clover Trail platform. The sources claim that while the Intel Medfield processor will be coming in the first half of 2012, PC makers are looking more to Clover Trial thanks to performance and power savings.
This isn’t the first time that we’ve heard Clover Trail is coming in the second half of 2012 and a new processor is on the Intel Atom processor road map. It’s going to be an exciting 2012 with the entry of this new operating system on to the market. Business users are expected to flock to the Wintel tablets, though if that expectation turns into a reality remains to be seen.
