Intel (NASDAQ:INTC): As companies scramble to get their hardware into the next big device, Intel seems to have won the latest round, as it was revealed that its Atom chip was found in the next generation of Samsung’s (SSNLF.PK) Galaxy tablet, set to make its debut at Computex in a couple of weeks. Stranger still, the Korean firm has a chip of its own that it could use, but Geek suggests that Samsung has called on Intel to avoid supply-and-demand-related issues.
