Intel looks beyond Windows, will reportedly supply chips for Samsung Android tablets

Intel Samsung Tablet Chips

Like many in the PC manufacturing and component supply business, Intel has been caught flat-footed by the rise of tablets, which have been eating away at PC sales for the past several quarters. An unnamed source tells Reuters, however, that Intel’s losing streak in the mobile world may soon be over because it’s scored a deal to supply chips for the new high-end Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1. Although Intel chips have been used before in Samsung’s Windows-based ATIV tablets, having its chips in flagship Android tablets would provide a major boost for the company and give its new mobile-centric chips legitimacy in the consumer electronics industry. Reuters says that Intel has been “rushing to adapt its powerful PC chips to use less energy and work more efficiently in mobile devices.”
