Submission + - Dell, HP Windows 8 'Atom' Tablets Delayed Until 2013 (informationweek.com)

CowboyRobot writes: "Dell and other vendors have pushed back until January the launch of Windows 8 tablets that use a new, energy-efficient Intel chip that was supposed to put Windows devices on an even footing with the iPad and Android tablets in terms of performance and battery life, but which is apparently causing big headaches for system builders. Most PC makers currently offer Windows 8 systems, such as the Dell XPS 12, that use Intel's older Core architecture instead of Clover Trail. Microsoft's Surface Pro tablet also runs an Intel Core chip. Core packs more power than Clover Trail, but does not support Connected Standby and consumes batteries more quickly."
