LAS VEGAS - We’re wrapping up our “Count the Tablets” coverage of CES with eight tablets that Intel was demonstrating. These were a mix of Windows and Android-powered devices, and they include one device (the Motion CL900) that we already covered from Microsoft’s booth, for a total of 51 tablets we were able to round up.
The bad news is that Intel had no information on hand about the devices, and when we asked we were told to go to some unspecified place on the company’s Web site to ferret out specs and whatnot that we could then laboriously try and match up to our photos. We had a brilliant counter offer, however, which was, “No.”
We should also note that some of these devices are prototypes of unreleased technologies being shown for gee-whizz effect, but the booth folks weren’t too keen on identifying even that.
At least these devices were powered on, and we were able to handle them. In addition, they were being kept clean by Intel’s booth staff, and that puts Intel’s tabletpalooza display head and shoulders above everyone but Microsoft, which was hands down the best of the lot.
All of which is kind of said, but jeepers, wasn’t all the hype leading up to CES well-founded? Apple must be quaking in its Cupertino boots…
Be that as it may, here are seven new tablets that were shown at CES, along with another picture of the Motion CL900.
Unspecified device, but with “Intel Inside”
A device fro Gemtek
Motion CL900, which we covered from Microsoft’s booth
The label reads “Avaya Desktop Video Device,” whatever that is
