    Yes, and they are aware of that. Since they been losing out to Android.

    They fix that, they released Windows 8.1 with Bing which is heavily discounted version of Windows 8 aimed for cheap tablets.

    They exist, but you can't buy them without windows:

    That's fairly interesting. Obviously they're getting their ass handed to them by ARM, but they've started to punch well above their weight by leveraging their fabrication advantage. I have a Lenovo Miix 2 which, while having it's problems, is a fairly capable x86 tablet and I like it a lot (good for playing Hearthstone!).

    It's good to know they're using Mesa in their implementation in a market previously dominated by chip manufacturers who only do drivers as binary blobs.
    Yet Qualcomm chips are probably the most popular right now, and their GLES3 implementation in their Android blob is completely broken.

    Nvidia is showing mobile what a GPU in your pocket can do. Intel (should) be doing the same, really. It is sad how few x86 tablets there are that aren't overpriced.

    Because they have largest graphics driver team on Linux.

    There also was other Linux-based mobile OSes Intel participated of course.

    In other news, Marek recently landed 3 new OpenGL 4.0 features (parts of shader model 5) for r600 authored by Glenn Kennard. Thanks!

    They have a open soure driver only (while nvidia has a closed source driver only and AMD has both) ? So they can't say "use our closed source driver, it has OpenGL 4.X" like the competition is doing.
