Intel has confirmed that the first tablets to use its new Oak Trail platform will be introduced in May.

The Oak Trail platform is comprised of a single-core Atom CPU designed for netbooks and tablets, supported by the Whitney Point chipset.

The company confirmed to ZDNet UK's sister site ZDNet.com on Tuesday that the tablets will begin to ship in May.

Intel said in June 2010 that Oak Trail would give a "50 percent reduction in average power consumption with full HD-video playback and targeting software choice including MeeGo, Windows 7 and Google operating systems".

A number of manufacturers have already announced devices that will run on the platform, including Fujitsu, Lenovo, Samsung and enterprise-focused Motion Computing. Some of the devices shown so far, such as the ViewSonic ViewPad 10 Pro, have featured a single-core 1.5GHz Atom Z670 processor.

Intel is expected to make the announcement at Computex 2011 in Taipei, which runs between 31 May and 4 June, as it first announced the Oak Trail platform at the event last year.
