Computex 2011 will be here before you know it and along with the show will come a herd of new tablets and other gadgets for us to check out. DigiTimes reports that at the show Lenovo, Fujitsu and Samsung will be showing off new Intel Oak Trail tablets. MSI is also said to be getting a new tablet ready that will run the AMD Brazos APU.

MSI is noting to DigiTimes that AMD's APU has increased its presence in the tablet market. Perhaps the more interesting bit to come out of that news about AMD and MSI doing well in the tablet market together is that AMD is reportedly on the lookout for some new Android talent.

AMD is specifically searching for new blood that will work on Android driver software. This indicates that AMD might be looking to offer chipsets for notebooks, tablets, and netbooks that can run Android. That opens the interesting possibility of Fusion for Android.
