Here are some convertibles Ultrabooks with touch screens shown by Pegatron, Foxconn, Inventec, Lenovo, Samsung, Acer, Lenovo, NEC, Sony, Asus, LG, HP and Toshiba. All are showing new Ultrabooks at Computex 2012 but that doesn’t mean that they are going to sell many. In fact, Intel does not want to answer the quantity question. I don’t know anyone who has bought an Ultrabook and I don’t know anyone who wants to pay $1000 for a laptop. I’d like to see $199 ARM Powered Ultrabooks sooner rather than later.
Does Intel prepare to announce that they are making an ARM Processor?

Which Desktop apps are going to work on Windows RT and is Intel in any way involved in deciding what gets to run on Windows RT?
Seshu Madhavapeddy talks about how Texas Instruments works on their OMAP4 and OMAP5 processors to be in the Galaxy Nexus and in a whole range of other high-end smartphone and tablet devices.
Pixel Qi has a bunch of customers doing tablets and laptops for Military and Industrial use such as the Orchard Inc Toughblet and the InHand Hydra T3 but they are not yet able to announce big orders from some of the major consumer oriented tablet makers. I’m hoping for the Google Nexus Tablet or the next Kindle to use Pixel Qi, but for any eventual announcements on that we’ll have to wait further.
Here’s a tablet with a $8 option to include DVB-T or ISDBT, the ICS Telechips TCC8923 tablet costs $70 in bulk without the digital TV option.
