Intel is forgoing its long partnership with Microsoft in favor of Android, which it's hoping to incorporate in 80-90 percent of the 40 million tablets its processors will be forming a part of. At the moment, most Intel-powered tablets based on Android are using older chips, but a new, Android-based tablet, called the DreamTab built on Intel's new Atom processor is expected to ship out in the coming months.
According to Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, Intel is not ruling out Windows for their tablets. However Microsoft has failed to make the same impact on the tablet market as Google and Apple, with tablets by Dell, Toshiba, Lenovo and HP not selling well. Intel is rightfully going where the market is today. Krzanich himself said that he expects Windows to "grow and gain traction" sooner than later, where tablets are concerned.
