I’ve talked here and elsewhere about the potential importance of the upcoming new Atom Bay Trail processor tablets, reportedly offering laptop speeds on iPad-sized Windows 8 tablets, with all-day battery life.
Well, Paul Thurrott has a good list of Atom Bay Trail Tablets he says are coming in time for Christmas buying season. Three in that list look like a fantastic balance of power, tablet format, and price: the ASUS Transformer Book Trio T100TA, the Dell “Midland,” and perhaps the Lenovo Miix 8 (an 8 inch tablet). These are Windows Pro tablets, so at these low prices I think the next Surface RT (updated model coming soon called Surface 2) needs a price well south of $300 to stay competitive. Anyway, good to see these tablets are coming!
