Expected to launch 35 tablets by year's end

Intel Corp. is preparing to unveil nearly a dozen new tablet computers that run on its chips at Computex, at the end of May, the Wall Street Journal reports

Intel is seeking to expand beyond PCs and into the mobile market, where ARM has dominated thanks to licensees such as Qualcomm, NVIDIA, and Texas Instruments. 

Intel recently announced its new 22nm 3D Tri-Gate transistors that will boost performance by up to 37 percent compared to existing 32nm technology. It's all part of the company's focus on increasing performance while lowering power consumption -- a move aimed directly at ARM and its hold on the smartphone and tablet market.

Intel is launching a new set of Atom chips, codenamed Oak Trail, specifically for tablets. "While the project improves Intel's position, analysts say the company faces an uphill struggle, as it comes late to the game and is also handicapped by its lack of strong partnerships and applications designed for Android or other popular tablet operating systems, unlike its position in the PC world with Microsoft Inc.'s Windows," WSJ reports.

But Navin Shenoy, Intel's general manager for Asia-Pacific, told WSJ that more than 35 Intel-chip-based tablets are targeted to ship by the end of the year. He also mentioned that component shortages from Japan did not affect Intel's supply chain.
