Forget Ivy Bridge and Ultrabooks, Intel already has its partners working on 20 new tablet designs based on its Clover Trail Atom chips, as the firm looks to take on rival ARM in its own back yard with a renewed mobile push.

Advice for OEMs
Illustration shows Metro Start screen in the old fashioned 768p format.
OEMs, please note Metro UX is better on 1080p on 10" display up and the visibility of tiles makes it much easier for consumers to spot the low resolution duds on the shelves than is currently the case with netbooks. Worth spending a few dollars on the BOM.
