It’s no surprise that Intel is working on a new low power Intel Atom Z6xx series chipset for low power devices including tablets and smartphones. What is a bit surprising is that one of the first devices spotted using one of the new chips is an obscure device from Chinese PC maker Teso.

Teso is showing off a 9.7 inch tablet which will apparently be available with a choice of a 1.2GHz Intel Atom Z515 chip or a 1.9GHz Intel Atom Z650 processor. With the Z515 chip, the tablet will be Windows 7 capable, but the Atom Z6xx Moorestown series of chips are designed to use less energy than their predecessors, so despite the higher clock speed of the Z650, Teso says the tablet will run Android 2.2 or MeeGo Linux with this chip instead of Windows.
