According to Digitimes, it seems that Intel has a tablet planned with the codename StoryBook. This tablet is apparently the successor to the ClassMate PC and will be targeted at developing markets such as Brazil and China, which means that assuming the information is to be believed, there is a slim chance we could be seeing it arrive stateside. As far as its specs are concerned, the StoryBook tablet PC will be powered by Intel’s new Medfield chip that has been designed for both smartphones and tablets in mind. It will also sport a 10” display and will allow for dual operating systems, although it was not specified as to which operating systems would be making its way onto this rumored tablet (Android would be one of our guesses). Digitimes has also reported that Intel might be pricing the StoryBook tablet below $299 and will be leveraging their Classmate PC partnership with emerging countries to help with the adoption of the StoryBook tablet PC. What do you guys think?
