Intel to Launch Honeycomb Powered Tablets Soon

Intel is the leading chip maker in the world, and they are always the first choice of a PC gamer or any other person who is looking forward to buy a new processor. While they have been a top name for PCs and laptops, they essentially have no presence in mobile.  Now, however,  it looks like they are about to give their full attention to Android tablets. According to CEO of Intel Paul S. Otellini, Intel has received Android Honeycomb code from Google and now they are working to port it to the x86 architecture. This means that in near future, we will see an Android Honeycomb tablet running on the Intel Oak Trail processor.

Intel processors are less power consuming which means more battery and fun. There are number of Intel laptops available in the market (I am using one right now), and the reason people go for Intel is that it eats less resources as compared to other chips. I am sure if a company launches Intel Oak Trail based tablet, then it will offer a great battery life, which is a big sticking point for us Android users. Anyone out there looking forward to Intel-based tablets?
