Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) recently revealed a number of specifications that will be featured on the future Windows 8 tablets of the company. These specifications were revealed recently during a conference held in Beijing recently. Although some industry watchers have praised the goal of the company for the future Windows 8 tablets, it remains uncertain if they are doable within the year.
The future Windows 8 tablets will reportedly feature the Atom Z2760 chip or the Clover Trail processor, which is a dual-core processor that features a burst mode, which offers quick performance boosts whenever necessary. The processor also offers hyper-threading which allows a dual-core processor to function like a quad-core chip in some instances.
Intel also proposed that the future Windows 8 tablets will have two basic designs, the first being a ten-inch tablet and the second design is an eleven-inch tablet that comes with physical keyboards. The battery life of the future tablets using the Windows 8 OS should be at least nine hours although this particular feature will remain uncertain until the devices are released into the market.
The future Windows 8 tablets should also feature 3G/4G connectivity. With the acquisition of Infineon by Intel, it will be able to manufacture its own chips whenever it will be needed for the future Windows 8 tablets.
Intel also indicated that future Windows 8 tablets should not weigh more than 1.5 pounds while its thickness should be limited to less than 9 millimeters. In comparison the new iPad of Apple weighs 1.44 pounds and is 9.4 millimeters thick. Other features that may be included in future tablets running the upcoming operating system of Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) are near field communication and Wi-Fi Direct.
These are some of the features that are projected to be featured on future Windows 8 tablets that will be released in the later part of 2012 although this is still a plan for the company. However the company has been quite skilled in persuading its partners to following its recommendations although this remains uncertain for now.
