Intel may have introduced its new Intel Atom Z6xx Moorestown platform in early May. But it’s going to be another 6 to 12 months before we start to see tablets, smartphones, and other Moorestown-based devices hit the streets. That’s according to Intel vice president Anand Chandrasekher, speaking at an event in Taiwan today.

That doesn’t necessarily mean that Moorestown chips still need time in the oven. It could simply mean that Intel still has to send samples to device makers for testing, ramp up production and distribution, and then wait for device makers to ramp up their own production before we’ll actually be able to walk into a store and buy a Moorestown tablet.

The Intel Atom Z6xx series chips will be available with clock speeds ranging from 1.5GHz to 1.9GHz. They include GMA 600 graphics with support for 3D graphics and video acceleration while using significantly less power than the Atom Z5xx chips they’ll replace. Intel is promising users will get around 8-10 hours of run time out of a Moorestown tablet, although that will clearly depend on the batteries that OEMs end up using.
