It was not a refresh in 2008, it was the product introduction. And what took so long was they had no competition or pressure until the mobile boom that happened in 2010-2011 and really not until 2011 and the tablets did they start to feel any heat.
To save me from typing it again here's a paste of the last time you posted this crap the other day.
This slide is months old, and it doesn't say the tablets will be available, just the chips will be flowing. Big difference here. I'll be surprised to see this before Q1. According to Intel slides it only goes into QA in Q4 so how the heck can it get into a device by then? I wish toms would stop quoting old crap calling it new. I refuted this slide ages ago elsewhere.
In Jan this slide was out...I'd have to dig a bit to find the Q4 QA crap but it was clear from their own info this won't make it into 2013 products.
AFter looking again, Nov-Jan 14 production, it will be lucky to make it into a Q1 product.
To date google has had the fastest chip received->product intro (4.5mo I think), so no Q1 crap for this chip unless Intel pulls off a miracle which from Jan data, this can't be done. Even if they hit Early Nov (instead of Jan), you can't get a product made with it for another 4.5mo or more. So Q2 products if manufacturing in Nov-Jan. If it's Jan this will be LATE Q2 products.
Those were posts correcting this data: http://www.tomshardware.com/news/Intel-Bay-Trail-Tablet-Atom,22304.html
Why I'm helping you get hits for crap data that was posted months ago is beyond me, but whatever. Until I see a slide that says shipping next month instead of manufacturing in Nov-Jan14 you are full of crap. You have to be shipping product in the next 2 months to make it in time for xmas stuff. I'd say July at the latest or you don't give a manufacturer time to get a product ready and they go with someone else (much like T4 missed nexus 7rev2 as S600 was SHIPPING! See the point?).
Posting engine seems to ignore CR's now? Edited to space it out as intended.
