With Intel’s latest effort in the computing market, they’re making their way into education with a device simply called "Education Chromebook." This is a reference design, so to speak, but it’ll be ready to use this year by students worldwide. Here you’ve got utter simplicity while retaining computing power and an education aim.
Intel has launched its first offering with a Bay Trail processor, the awkwardly-named Intel NUC Kit DN2820FYKH. With this tiny computer comes a budget-friendly price and Windows 8.1, as well as a variety of connectivity options and ports to meet most users' needs, whether using the PC as a desktop computer or as part of an entertainment system.
Earlier today, Intel's CEO Brian Krzanich made the company's third-quarter earnings call, revealing additional information during the time including word that the Broadwell chip has been delayed a quarter. In addition to that, the executive also talked about the Bay Trail chips, detailing their sizable arrival in the next handful of weeks.
Though the company made clear that they're out on smartphones for the time being (back in 2012), Dell has been revealed to be a headliner here in 2013 for a Windows tablet running Intel's new Bay Trail processor. Not one whole heck of a lot is known about this device at the moment, as Dell has only just shown the machine off at Intel's event for Bay Trail with scant detail, but we do know this: this is a move for Dell that's required a large amount of consideration. It's not as if the company has been doing well in the tablet market as of late.
Today Intel has revealed their plans for the Bay Trail collection of Atom Z3000 Series Processors, making clear that they're aiming for devices that are small but powerful. This line of SoC is headed for tablets, phones, and everything in-between packing Intel's newest Silvermont architecture for next-generation processing finesse. This is not Intel's first move into the mobile smart device universe, but it's certainly its most serious.
