Intel: Ultrabook is not a sign it failed in tablets

Michael Kan, IDG News Service | May 31, 2011
Intel's proposal of a new class of laptop, the Ultrabook, isn't an admission that it is losing the battle to put its microprocessors in tablets, according to a company executive.

Intel's announcement of the Ultrabook also does not mean the company is shifting its attention away from netbooks, according to Erik Reid, general manager for Intel's mobile platform division.

"We absolutely believe in the netbook category," he said, adding that Intel will announce new innovations for Netbooks on Wednesday at Computex. Intel also wants to bring the price of netbooks down to $199, Reid said.
