Intel doubles down on tablets, says it will power 130 models this year

It's obvious Intel wants to be inside your next tablet. But odds are, it isn't: Revenue for the company's mobile division was down an alarming 61 percent in the first quarter. And while the future still doesn't look too promising for Intel-based smartphones, the outfit thinks it can at least make some progress on the tablet front. The company has just announced that it expects 130 Intel-based Android and Windows slates to debut this year, with at least a dozen launching here at Computex. If that sounds like a big number, it is: At last year's keynote, Intel promised just 30 tablets for 2013. Whether Intel reverses its fortunes in the mobile space remains to be seen, but hey, more devices can't hurt, right?
