Intel CEO Paul Otellini said that the appearance on the market of devices with Windows 8, worth $ 200, will happen in the near future. This will be possible thanks to the new chip, codenamed Bay Trail, which was introduced earlier this year.
The chip is manufactured using 22-nanometer technology and according to Intel, it is the widow more powerful than the current generation of tablets. If the price of the device with Bay Trail processors will actually be so low, it will benefit Intel and Microsoft.
Entry into the segment of tablets is a key priority for the U.S. chipmaker, as it is one of the most rapidly developing markets.
Microsoft, for its part, will be glad to see cheap devices with Windows 8 that will help to increase the popularity of the operating system. It is the high prices on tablets with the OS are one of the reasons for the low demand for them.
