Samsung puts Intel inside tablet

Written by Nick Farrell



Chipzilla wins arm wrestle

Intel has won a major coup in its bid to become credible in the mobile arena after Samsung chose one of its chips to power a new version of one of its top-tier Android tablets.

According to some fairly good rumours, Samsung has chosen Intel's Clover Trail+ mobile chip for at least one version of its Galaxy Tab 3 10.1. Samsung has previously used ARM chips but it uses Intel processors for its line of Microsoft Windows "ATIV" tablets.

Samsung will unveil new ATIV tablets using Intel chips at a June 20 event in London, said the source, as well as an additional person familiar with the event. It was unclear whether the Galaxy Tab would debut at the same event. The use of an Intel Clover Trail+ chip in the upcoming tablet was first reported on by VentureBeat and other blogs last week, but now it has been confirmed by Reuters.

An Intel mobile processor was used in a version of Motorola's Razr smartphone launched last year in markets like Argentina, Brazil, Britain, France, Germany and Mexico. Samsung has nearly 18 percent of the market for tablets, according to IDC.
