Intel’s Medfield-based Red Ridge platform for tablets submitted to FCC
Intel’s Medfield-based Red Ridge tablet platform is ready to return to the spotlight, as it has has been spotted at the FCC, although not many details about it have been revealed publicly. The company is expected to unveil its tablet chips at next month’s Consumer Electronics Show that takes place in Las Vegas during 8-11 January 2013, although nothing is confirmed yet.
According to the FCC filling, the Red Ridge device is running Android 4.0 and supports Bluetooth, NFC, and Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n. Engadget reports that they have been told that a “production unit” was used in the filling, which means the device could land in the market in “just under a month.”
Intel’s Medfield processors that were introduced a year ago didn’t produce the results the chip maker has been expecting but Red Ridge could change the game when it comes to tablets and we may start seeing Android tablets, and not only, using the chip in the foreseeable future.
