The Street has learned, by way of an analyst who talked to Apple's design manufacturing partners, that Apple won't be using Intel on their upcoming tablet. Instead, they're going to use chips designed by PA Semi, their own chip foundry.
It's basically what everyone thought since Apple bought the chip company—since there haven't been any products out yet that have used the chips. It'd be interesting to see what PA Semi comes up with for the tablet; since Apple can dictate exactly what hardware they want, it'll definitely be more optimized than just using an Intel solution.
