New tablets but what about the processors?
There’s a flood of new tablets being shown off this week at the shows: if any of them would just be released we could go out and buy an alternative to the lame apple offering. Strangely though for the huge amount of tablets proposed they all seem to be using either the netbook type processors or a smartphone style unit. The latest bunch using the 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, the same chip as found in the Nexus One, HTC EVO 4G, etc.
Now these may be fine and powerful for a phone but what about a large tablet?
Netbooks are ok for surfing, a bit of email or the odd document but suffer when you try to do anything processor intensive. Likewise a smartphone.
Why isn’t anyone bringing out a new chip, custom designed for running a 7-10 inch touchscreen and the things we need to do on a tablet?
