Intel Praises iPad, Vows to Win Tablet Segment

Intel CEO Paul Otellini praised the iPad for its successes but vowed to ultimately win the tablet category, according to CNET.

"I know the big question on everyone's mind is how Intel will respond to new computing categories where Intel currently has no presence, specifically tablets...We think tablets are exciting and fully welcome their arrival. Apple has done a wonderful job reinventing the category," he said during Tuesday's conference call. "Will they impact PC sales? Sure, at the margin they probably will," he said.

Then Otellini got down to business. "We will use all of the assets at our disposal to win this segment," he said, adding that a number of tablet products will come to market "in the coming months and quarters" based on Windows, Android, and Meego operating systems "across a variety of form factors and price points."

Intel hopes to do this via their "Oak Trail" Intel Atom chip targeted at tablets. Intel will soon be integrating 3G and 4G capabilities via their new acquisition of Infineon.
