RUMORS - Intel-powered touchscreen laptops running Android could soon come out this year

Intel CEO Paul Otellini last week said touchscreen PCs could debut at prices as low as $200 in the coming months.

Dadi Perlmutter, Intel executive vice president and chief product officer, told that notebooks priced at the $200 level will predominantly be Android products running on Intel’s Atom mobile processor. Whether Windows 8 PCs hit that price largely depends on Microsoft, he said.

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