Intel paints bleak picture for Windows tablets vs. Android
When Intel announced its tablet numbers for the first quarter on Tuesday, it was clear that Android buried Windows.
Intel CEO Brian Krzanich said during the company's first-quarter earnings conference call that out of the 5 million tablet processors shipped "80 to 90 percent" were for Android and the rest Windows.
That leaves a pretty small number for Windows, underscoring the uphill battle Microsoft is fighting against Android and Apple in the tablet market.
"Windows tablet numbers in general have been pretty modest," said Bob O'Donnell, founder and chief analyst Technalysis Research.
The problem is, a pure Windows tablet experience doesn't have a lot to offer when compared with Android and Apple.
"Consumers using Windows want more of a PC experience. And they're going to get that from a device that has a keyboard," he said.
