Acer Honeycomb tablet on Intel Oak Trail due by July; MeeGo in wings

Acer's first Android 3.0 based tablet running on Intel's Oak Trail processors is expected to hit retail by July at the latest, going by the latest Taipei rumors, offering the promise of greater performance over existing ARM-based slates like the Iconia Tab A500 but maintaining comparable pricing. According to DigiTimes' sources, Compal is already mass-producing the anonymous tablet; meanwhile, Acer is reportedly considering adding another tablet platform to its portfolio.

Intel: Apple shapes our roadmap, ARM MacBook is ridiculous

Intel: Apple shapes our roadmap, ARM MacBook is ridiculous

Intel hasn't just been annoying Microsoft this week; the chip company has also been admitting quite how valuable Apple's roadmap is, and how much it shapes Intel's own product plans. "Apple helps shape our roadmap" senior Intel VP Tom Kilroy told Reuters, "they push us hard." That reliance could be under threat, according to reports earlier this month that Apple was planning a switch to ARM processors for its mainstream notebook line, though Kilroy is quick to dismiss it as unfounded.

Acer & ASUS snub Oak Trail Atom despite Intel price cuts?

Acer & ASUS snub Oak Trail Atom despite Intel price cuts?

Acer and ASUS have reportedly snubbed Intel's efforts to push Oak Trail Atom processors for tablet PCs, despite rumored price cuts on the chips that bring them into line with what NVIDIA is asking for Tegra 2. According to DigiTimes' sources, manufacturers are reluctant to consider Oak Trail given it is out-performed by the second-gen Tegra chip, and itself due for replacement in September 2011 by Cedar Trail-M.

Intel Cedarview 2011 Atom platform detailed: 32nm & DDR3 support

Intel Cedarview 2011 Atom platform detailed: 32nm & DDR3 support

We're only now seeing the first Pineview netbooks - based on Intel's next-gen Atom platform - begin to show themselves, but details are already emerging about the silicon company's intentions for the platform after that.  Come 2011, say Fudzilla, Intel are expected to out Cedarview, a 32nm processor with a new, DDR3-compatible memory controller.

That DDR3 compatibility is particularly interesting, as it will put Atom's RAM support on a par with what Intel's Core i7 - Bloomfield processors can utilize.  However Intel will limit supported memory to single-channel sticks, though you'll at least be able to use two DIMMs; that, say Fuzdilla, is confirmed for the nettop platform, but it's likely to be the same situation for netbooks.

The news isn't too surprising given the forthcoming onslaught of Ultrabooks, but it does further confirm the grim outlook for the ill-fated netbook market. Dell and Lenovo are already officially out of the netbook space, while Samsung and Sony haven't launched any new models this year either.

AMD admits it’s ignoring smartphones

AMD admits it’s ignoring smartphones

AMD has admitted that it ceded the smartphone processor space to rivals, arguing that the company's strengths in graphics don't lend themselves to the handset segment. Instead, SVP and product group manager Rick Bergman suggests, tablets are where AMD's future lies, with the company's Z-series APUs delivering a balance of video performance and battery life. Speaking in Colorado this week, PC World reports, Bergman also reiterated earlier denials of ARM-based chipset plans.
