    Windows 8 touch devices to drop to $200, says Intel CEO

    The price of Windows 8 touch devices, including laptops, will sink to price points that penetrate inexpensive tablet territory. These new "innovative" designs will be based on Intel's upcoming quad-core "Bay Trail" chip, Intel executives said today during the company's first-quarter earnings conference call.

    Hi there
    With a decent 4.7 - 5 inch screen on a smart phone what use is there of a 7 inch tablet.
    IMO wrong device at the wrong time.

    The Surface Pro is probably the future of tablets and it's not really a "classical tablet" at all -- I'm sure year 2014 will be "The Tablet --- R.I.P". A few who never needed a computer in the first place might keep these but the 7 inch model doesn't really buy you a lot that you can't already do with a smart phone. Hybrids will probably prosper as there are certan advantages in a powerful tablet form factor for Displaying CONTENT -- But for CREATING it you still need a device with PC type peripherals attached -- such as keyboard / mouse / pen / external drives etc.

    If that happens, it might just save MS from disaster.
