Close to 50 ARM based tablet devices could be launched through 2010. This was stated by Roy Chen, ARM’s ODM manager for worldwide mobile computing who says that enquiries over ARM technology for tablet devices from PC manufacturers is so intense that the company has had to rent additional floor space to show off the devices at CeBIT.
One caveat here: Not all enquiries translate into actual products. But truth is that PC and mobile manufacturers have realized the mistake in letting the iPhone have an early mover advantage in the smartphone segment and regardless of whether they see justice in serving a segment like tablet, companies are likely to launch few devices to gauge customer interest in the same.
