Two designs, dual-core Atom chip, and 4G connectivity to come
Intel has revealed a number of hardware specifications for its upcoming Windows 8 tablets at the IDF conference in Beijing.
Initially, two tablet designs will be available, one being a 10-inch one, while the other a 11-inch hybrid that comes with physical keyboards and 3G/4G connectivity.
The tablets will come with Intel's dual-core Atom Z2760 "Clover Trail" chipset, which is built on a 32nm process.
Intel said the Atom Z2760 chip features a burst mode and offers hyperthreading which lets performance boosts occasionally, CNET reported.
The tablets running on Microsoft's upcoming operating system would weigh under 1.5 pounds with less than 9mm thickness.
The battery life of the future tablets should be at least nine hours and connectivity options include 3G/4G connectivity, WiFi Direct, as well as NFC technology.
Other features for Windows 8 tablets that will be launched later this year include five physical buttons; power, volume up, volume down, rotation lock, and the Windows key.
