Intel Highlights Android Reference and Core-M Hybrids

At its recent Developer Forum, Intel showed off an Android reference design programme, intended to simplify the development of Intel-based Android tablets. OEMs will be able to choose from a set of components or a complete bill of materials specification before building a system. New convertible products were also on display, using the Core-M chip (previously known as Broadwell-Y, Display Monitor Vol 21 No 1). They included the Dell Venue 10, Acer’ Aspire Switch 12 and Lenovo’s Thinkpad Helix (Display Monitor Vol 21 No 35) and HP’s Envy x2 (Display Monitor Vol 21 No 36). There were also models from Asus (Transformer Book UX305 and Chi) and Wistron (N-Midas).
