Atom Tablets with Windows 8 will start selling next year
From MaximumPC report that Intel has had some problems with the certification of its graphics drivers for Microsoft windows 8 operating system, problems that have caused the postponement of almost all Cloverview based tablets until next year, which dates Intel expected to get certification of hardware quality labs “WHQL” (Windows Hardware Quality Labs) for Microsoft.
No doubt a very bad news for all users who expected a tablet with great autonomy and able to run many of our cherished traditional x86 applications and games, plus the ARM tablets are not able to offer at the moment.
In passing we mention that the tablets based APU AMD Z Series “Hondo” also absent, except for Tablet Fujitsu Q572 , we have not seen other models available, although it is expected that during the CES 2013 event are announced many tablets based on both Cloverview as Hondo.
