The first Windows 8 (MSFT) tablets sporting Intel (INTC) CPUs will arrive in November, sources tell CNET. It's added the devices will use Intel's upcoming Clover Trail Atom CPUs, and over half will be PC/tablet hybrids. A successful launch could give a lift to touchscreen controller vendors such as ATML, CY, and SYNA. A prior report claimed both Intel and ARM-based (ARMH) Windows 8 hardware will arrive in October.

  • I would expect Windows 8 to make significant ground in sales volume for tablets, as long as device manufacturers deliver quality devices. If device manufacturers price near Apple iPad levels, but offer greater (more laptop like) functionality, then sales may be robust, though I expect netbooks and laptops to decline in sales. The other unknown is battery life, because all that power may place quite the drain on longevity.

  • Hmmm - AAPL may not hit 1000 by the end of the year now. Dang.
    Specially if it does more than play games & music.
