Intel Atom Android Tablets Arrive at Computex 2011 Venue; 10 Devices

June 1, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The Computex event in Taipei is turning out to be a perfect platform for some amazing product launches this year. You very well know Computex brings in a lot of interesting stuff for the tech enthusiast year after year. This year it is even awesome, to say the least. This time around, we are more than excited about the Intel pavilion, with the company bringing in a truck load of slates running on Android platforms.

Intel circles say they are planning to display at least ten tablets running on Android platform and powered by Intel Atom processors. However, the tablets here are just pointers rather than full fledged working machines.

Intel just wants to showcase that they have detailed plans for Android tabs in the future. Since they are still prototypes, the performance is not consistent. Though running on Android 2.3 or Android 3.0, many of the slates were not up to the mark if you try them hands on. We found some of the slates failing to catch up with the pace of users’ inputs, as compared with other slates in the market. However, many are indeed notable for their graphics performance.

Though not all the prototypes exhibited here are so promising, the fact that one of the major chip makers preparing hardware plans for one of the popular tablet Operating System platforms is good news. When they start hitting the market, users will be blessed with more options to choose from. Don’t you think so? Tell us your take on that.

Even as you are left pondering as to how many of these will come to your midst, we have for you here a hands on video from folks at Engadget. Hit play, and you will see a new world opening up in the tablet arena.
