Will Intel-Powered Tablets Survive The Market Competition?


Microsoft needs to brave through a tough situation and put in quite an effort to ensure their Intel-based slates survive the market competition, when the iPad charm has yet to fade.

However, according to resources both Intel (the name behind Clover Trail Hardware) and Microsoft (providing Windows 8 software) aren’t likely to slash their prices hence giving no relief to the manufacturing companies. This might compel the manufacturing companies to look for other alternatives, like the ARM-powered hardware as compared to purchasing costly devices by these two tech market big-wigs. However, if it happens, consumers will have to put up with tablets which are unable to handle the range of x86 Windows software.

Now the question is whether the consumers will find it worth paying a few extra bucks for application compatibility, while the rates of tablets in the market drop.
