Intel’s Medfield Developer Tablet Pictured In The Wild


Intel’s tablet based off their upcoming Medfield mobile processor was leaked in a few new images thanks to a tipster over at Android Community who provided these images of the device being manhandled in the wild. The 10.1-inch developer tablet is currently rocking Android 3.x Honeycomb and Intel’s 1.6GHz dual-core Medfield Atom mobile processor. You can see from the included pics it comes with the usual array of ports and buttons and the back of the device features a rather unique design. I like it.

Oh — and the most interesting part about this tablet is according to the tipster, he was able to purchase it off of “someone” for a mere $50. We’re hoping he left off a zero in there somewhere. We’re hoping to see more of this tablet during CES 2012 in only a few short weeks with Intel providing their own keynote during the event. Even though this device isn’t available for retail, what do you guys think of it?

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. i see nfc

  2. I think he left off two zeros in there :P

  3. Mah, my lappie is still better

    1. Contrary to popular belief, tablets are not as versatile as laptops. I use my tablet for reading recipes in the kitchen, netflix in bed, web browsing in the back yard. If you type more the a few words a time, then you are better off with a laptop.

      1. Amen to that.

      2. My Asus prime with the Dock types just fine after a few words.

  4. I’m looking forward to better javascript performance. 5 hr battery life would be plenty for my use. I have a tegra tablet. Some sites freeze or force close the browser on me.

    1. By the time this is out it will have to compete with dual core 2 Ghz Cortex A15 chips. Intel is still not in the game. From what I saw the Medfield chip scores only about 30% more than a Tegra 2, with much poorer idle power consumption.

  5. I see apple law suit

    1. I see another tablet which is much better than the Ipad 2 and its horrible low resolution screen and crappy itunes.

    2. That’s the first thing I thought.  Wow it looks at least 5% like an iPad.  The Apple attorneys must be foaming at the mouth.

      1. Except for the fact that this is a developer tablet, that means it isn’t meant for sale. It’s meant to show off what the processor is capable of. Companies do this all the time, they create a product that shows off what is able to be done, but don’t put that product up for sale. Look at the PS2 and PS3 developer units. They look nothing like the final product.

    3. I see a developer unit that is not meant to be sold, just to allow people to see what the processor is capable of.

  6. Bezel city!

    1. Gives you something to hold onto… like love handles. O_o

  7. It was so thin just like the iPad, but cheaper. 

    1. So is your…. Nah, i’m not going there.

    2. Galaxy Pad 10.1 is thinner than the Ipad 2 as well, not to mention a much better resoltion screen and all around better specs
