We all know that tablets are going to be huge next year. The things are already selling in droves this year with only a few options on the market for consumers to choose from. The tablet market will swell just as the netbook market did in years past. Intel has offered up a new slide that shows the companies that will be offering up tablets in 2011 using Atom processors.

The slide shows that the tablets will all use Atom processors but will run several different operating systems the OS' will include Windows, Android, and MeeGo. Major makers that will be offering Windows tablets include Lenovo, Dell, Asus, Toshiba, and more. Google Android tablets will be offered by Cisco, Asus, Dell, AT&T, and more. MeeGo units will be the least offered it seems with Acer, WeTab, and a couple small firms offering them.

 

Intel CEO Paul Otellini said that there will be two Atom flavors for tablets. One will be based on the PC Pine Trial chip and aimed at Windows tablets. The other will be based on Moorestown and while it will have an x86 instruction set, these processors will not be for Windows. This part will be in the Atom and MeeGo tablets.
