    Default Intel Secures a Deal with Samsung to Supply CPUs for Upcoming Android Galaxy Tab


    With Intel being absent in the current smartphone and tablet markets, the chipmaker recently scored a deal with Samsung to power one of the company’s upcoming 10-inch Android tablets. At least one version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 will be running on Intel’s Clover Trail+ mobile chip according to Reuters. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 series is a direct competitor to Apple’s full-sized iPad, which has dominated the premium tablet market since its launch in 2010.

    Samsung’s decision to use an Intel chip for an Android device was portrayed as a “coup” for Intel in the report. Most smartphones and tablets current sold, including Apple’s iPhone and iPad, are powered by chips based on ARM reference designs.

    Earlier in the month, Intel’s outgoing CEO Paul Otellini revealed this his company had the opportunity to provide chips for Apple’s first iPhone, which kicked off the smartphone revolution upon its release. Intel ended up passing on the potential deal with Apple and Otellini admitted that “the world would have been a lot different if we’d done it.” The rise of smartphones and tablets, which rely on low-power chips and offer strong battery life, has been contributing to significant struggles in the PC market, where Intel’s CPUs are most common. The latest data from IDC in April showed that traditional PC sales have declined 13.9% year-over-year in the first quarter of 2013, marking the largest drop in the industry’s history.

    While PC sales continue to drop, sales of tablets, which are led by Apple’s iPad, continue to surge. IDC predicts that tablet shipments will eclipse notebook PCs this year and surpass all PCs by the year 2015.

    Samsung’s new Intel-powered Galaxy Tab 3 could potentially be introduced at a company event in London scheduled for June 20. The company previously promised to show off new Galaxy products as well as devices for its Windows lineup, branded as Ativ.

    We’ll have to see if this deal will help Intel finally break into the tablet market.

    I might get one of these. It's the first tablet besides the iPad's that has actually caught my eye. Surface just looks like sh1t and I've had enough of Win8 :/
    I'm not crazy about Android on phones, but a tablet version sounds like lots of fun
