An interesting thing comes out over the weekend when news broke that Intel really wants to be inside the iPad – Yes they want to be. Speaking during a Q&A session on Thursday at Intel’s annual investor day in California, company’s CEO Paul Otellini said “Our job is to ensure our silicon is so compelling … in terms of running the Mac better or being a better iPad device, that as they [Apple] make those decisions they can’t ignore us.”

Now discussing some interesting fact is that the A5X processor that currently powers the iPad 3 is system-on-a-chip (SoC) which was designed by Apple and manufactured by Samsung. But, the problem strikes with the current A5X are that it is 310 percent larger than the A4 processor that powered the first-generation iPad.  The company says it wills eager to help Apple change this.
