Apple Not To Use Intel Atom Processors In “iSlate”?
By on January 7th, 2010

It seems that Apple has ditched the popular Intel Atom processor for their upcoming but still unannounced iSlatetouchscreen tablet device. The folks over at pocket-lint.com had a conversation with the Apple’s design manufactureapple-logo partners, and they have indicated that Apple won’t be using an Intel Atom processor to power the iSlate.

Apple instead seems to have used a processor made by a firm which they had acquired 2 years ago, named P A Semi. The report from pocket-lint.com says that Apple will not be using the Intel Atom processors, which contradicts the leaked specs of the iSlate , we had reported to our readers a few days ago. The leaked specifications of the iSlatestated that the device will be using an Intel Core 2 Duo low voltage processor. The leaked specification do look over the top to me as fitting all the above said stuff in such a small form factor seems impossible right now, with the available technology. The iSlatewill hopefully be announced on 26th January at the Yerba Buena Center For The Arts as we had reported earlier. Even though Apple has not mentioned anything about a touchscreen tablet device, the whole of the internet is currently abuzz with Apple’s iSlatedevice. Whether these are just plain rumors or whether these rumors are true to a certain extent, can only be found out at the upcoming BigApple event. These rumors have definitely helped Apple though, as the value of there shares are soaring right now.
