It looks like the Ocosmos OCS1 UMPC may be getting some company when it launches sometime in Q1 2011 with rumors that Acer, Asus, Dell, Samsung, and Toshiba are all developing tablet PCs also using the Intel Oak Trail platform that are penned in to launch around February or March next year with likely debuts at CES in January. All of this comes DigiTimes, so none of it is confirmed. Considering the site's close links to Taiwanese OEM manufacturers, however, it can't be written off either. Adding fuel to the fire, Intel has also stated that we can expect Oak Trail devices early next year with confirmation that mass production of the platform, made up of the Atom Z670 processor and SM35 chipset, is well underway.
Being the long awaited successor to the Atom Z-series processor and Menlow platform with the ability to run either MeeGo or Windows, Oak Trail is beginning to enjoy a growing sense of momentum behind it as we approach the end of this year and the start of the next. I'm fairly certain the new platform and a range of new devices powered by it will feature strongly at CES. Are you looking forward to the launch of Oak Trail? What kind of device would you like to see utilizing the new platform?[DigiTimes 1 & 2]
