Slates vs. tablets
I keep hoping Intel is right and they will get a toehold in the tablet market. I was at IDF yesterday and hoping to hear more about this, esp. tablets running Android on x86. However, as far as I can tell, most of the so-called tablets running on Intel CPUs are really slates -- that is, PCs running in a tablet form factor. That's a market segment that has been around for a long time and never gotten traction (cf. Surface). Until Intel gets into the tablet market with a popular entree, I think most its dialog on this is wishful thinking, rather than an reality.

Re: Slates vs. tablets
Andrew, what do you think is missing from the ultra-thin device Dell showed at IDF?

Not sure anything is missing, but it has no adoption.
