    Sources from within Intel suggest that in the third quarter of this year, Intel will announce a new plan for tablet PC's they call, PRC Plus. This plan calls for using Intel based processors in tablet PC's with Google's Android OS. Intel claims that their processors have a performance advantage over ARM-based processors, and that they will improve the operating system's user interface. The other advantage for their plan is to save costs on Windows licensing fees for downstream vendors. The DigiTimes article also added,
    Hmmm... this is an interesting development. Is this a sign of Intel moving slowly away from Microsoft, or just savvy business moves to cover all markets? Also, if it is true that Intel processors perform better than ARM based processors, the question still remains... can they run cooler? The Intel chips need to get really small and really cool before they will fit neatly into a tablet PC so that it doesn't cook your hands or lap...
    What do you guys think?
