Android Devices Set for Rule Only after Wide Spread ICS Arrival

January 20, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

We have some good news for those who are dying to play with Windows 8 tablets! A huge number of tablets that are to be run on Windows 8 platform are waiting in the production house, according to Intel CEO, Paul Otellini.

Speaking at the company’s earnings call, Otellini also maintained that Android devices cannot compete with the iPads in their current status, and that they will get an upper hand only when the wide-spread implementation of Ice Cream Sandwich happens.

Tablets are rated according to the software and technology used in them, and hardware is hardly a decisive factor. Hardware plays only a very small game in the performance and design of tablets, explained the Intel CEO.

Things could change a lot with the far-flung release of Ice Cream Sandwich. However, Android is not as powerful as the Apple equivalents in terms of performance in its current situation, he has been quoted as saying.

With a willingness to take active participation in the competition posed by Apple’s iPads, he said that a bunch of Windows 8 devices was scheduled for production. The new outings would be capable of combating Apple to some significant extent.

Maintaining his earlier stand that ultrabooks and tablets are almost similar in functioning, he said the distinction between the devices can’t be drawn easily by just observing what people do with them.

Otellini said that with the special silicon integration capability of Intel, the chipmaker could cut down on the cost of material significantly, and hence the company could roar back to the top of chip manufacturing.

The company has a supreme goal of shifting 40- percent of notebooks to the grade of ultrabooks by the end of this year.

Looks like we have an awesome road ahead. What do you think?
