Intel targets emerging markets with new StoryBook Tablet PC

Intel and Lenovo had launched the Classmate PC earlier this year for the educational sector, and it is powered by an Intel Atom N2600 dual-core processor, and has up to 320GB storage with a SATA hard drive (or up to 32GB with SSD). The chip giant was also reported to be releasing a new StoryBook Tablet PC, targeting emerging markets.

According to reports, chip giant Intel will be launching a new tablet PC product (codenamed "StoryBook") for emerging markets, and it will adopt the same sales model as the Classmate PC that was jointly developed by Intel and Lenovo. The StoryBook tablet PC will be based on Intel's Medfield platform with dual-operating systems, and also feature a 10-inch screen; the tablet PC is designed for emerging markets including China and Brazil. The StoryBook tablet PC is scheduled to be released in the second half of 2012 and Intel hopes to push the pricing to be below US$299. Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS), which has a close relationship with Intel and is also the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) of the Classmate PC, is expected to develop the StoryBook for Intel.
