After Nokia announced ally with Windows, Intel left alone with support for MeeGo platform and rumored that Intel would avoid the project on MeeGo. But According to company’s chief executive Paul Otellini now It seems that Intel is trying to be aggressive on the market by bringing more than 10 Tablets at Computex on May 31 that include both MeeGo and Android-based.

Intel announced its third big shift in chip development in an attempt to shift focus on power-efficient silicon for the booming smartphone and tablet markets, as well as to rationalize new designs for laptops. Anyway, it’s to be seen How the tablet makers respond to the move. Currently, ARM-based chips are being manufactured by companies like NVIDIA (with its Tegra lineup), Qualcomm (Snapdragon), Texas Instruments (OMAP processors) and Samsung (Hummingbird), while Intel Atom is virtually non-present.
Meanwhile Companies Asia Pacific manager Navin Shenoy said that over 35 tablet models running on Intel-made chips will be launched this year and also assured investors that company’s production line is not affected by the devastating earthquake in Japan.
