TRENDING NOW: Cyanogen CEO: "Samsung couldn't build a good OS if they tried"

Brace yourself, $200 Android Intel Atom based notebooks are coming

Intel exec says we will see $200 Android notebooks, not cheap Surface Tablets as previously mentioned

Last week I covered a story about Intel's CEO Paul Otellini predicting that Microsoft Surface tablets would soon see a price drop to $200. Now we are hearing a different story coming out of Intel, and the word is that it will be Android based notebooks that will sell at the $200 price point.

In an interview with CNET, Intel executive VP Dadi Perlmutter said that the $200 touchscreen devices will predominantly be Android based notebooks running on Intel's Atom mobile processors. While this news is still quite exciting, I still believe a $200 Microsoft Surface tablet would see massive sales. On the other hand, I will still be all in for a $200 Android based notebook.

 

When asked about Microsoft selling $200 tablets, Perlmutter had the following to say:

 

"We have a good technology that enables a very cost-effective price point. The price of Windows 8 laptops depends on how Microsoft prices Windows 8. It may be a slightly higher price point."
