I wonder why this is only finally coming about: Dual core/dual threaded technology taking so long to be produced at this level is because of management decisions, certainly not technological barriers. Both Intel and AMD have missed out, at least until soon, it seems. Perhaps this will cause Apple to re-think the glaring and annoying limitations placed on the otherwise incredible iPad if they want to retain top-dog status in this area. It may be too late. If the quality is there (a very big if), I will run over my iPad and upgrade to a more functional tablet

When asked why competitors had quad-core offerings but Intel did not, Intel CEO Paul Otellini said he doesn't think it matters. "I may have started the core wars when we did our first dual core product, but we learned that wasn't what's important," he said. What matters is processor performance.

Having used a tablet running Android, I can't wait for Intel/MS to provide a workable alternative.

I'm not sure I like the Win 8 "Metro" interface, which is one factor here balanced against the fact I do what access to those old Office programs sometimes.

I bought my first tablet in March, the new iPad and quickly added the Logitech ultrathin keyboard so that I could do touch typing, so now the tablet can be used like a netbook. I've played with the Windows 8 pre-release but there wasn't enough appeal for me to switch from iOS6, so I think that Microsoft has too-little, delivered too late by 2 years or so. Battery life is paramount in tablets, so for Intel+Others to be successful they have to optimize for 10+ hours per charge in a reference design.

Sorry but die size as large as ~200mm^2 is epic fail at 32nm.. Apple A6 at the same node (called 28nm at foundry) is only 96mm^2.. the cost of the clover trail + MS software will be much higher than ipad or android tablet.. It'll be cheaper than ultrabook or MBA, but way too expensive for tablet, putting the product in awkward market position.
