Although Intel Corp. will offer numerous Celeron- and Pentium-branded microprocessors based on low-power/low-cost Silvermont micro-architecture, the company will also use the brands to sell inexpensive products powered by its high-performance Haswell micro-architecture. While Intel Core i3 and Pentium chips featuring Haswell technology are due next month, Celeron processors based on the latest micro-architecture will only be available in early 2014.
Intel preps three desktop Celeron microprocessors powered by Haswell technology for launch in Q1 2014, according to a report from CPU World web-site. Just like current-generation Celeron products, the new chips will feature just two cores, 2MB L2 cache, dual-channel memory controller as well as basic Intel HD graphics engine clocked at up to 1050MHz. Quite naturally, the Haswell-based Celerons will also not support premium technologies like Hyper-Threading, AES, VPro, Turbo Boost and many others. The new chips are projected to use LGA1150 form-factor.
The chips are expected to feature 35W or 54W thermal design power, just right envelopes for low-cost small form-factor systems, but not breakthrough figures for chips made using 22nm process technology. While the chips will not revolutionize the market of very affordable desktop PCs, thanks to rather efficient architecture and relatively high performance, they will become viable options in the $37 - $52 per CPU market segment.
Intel did not comment on the news-story.

Without AMD existing, Celeron prices would be set at x10 of today's prices. That is the alternative reality that Intel fascists want to bring about.

yes i want to add one more thing without AMD-
core2duo scheduled for 2014 summer.

Even without AMD, Intel still has to sell chip to keep earning profit. If Intel jack up the price, then it cannot convince buyers to buy new chip. No selling new chip = no profit. Intel faces internal competition due to being so large. Plus OEM has a big say on pricing.
Your idea of no AMD = higher price is nothing but a fallacy.

this celeron looks just impressive 22nm FinFET3D+Haswell+2MB cache very nice but just a single mistake i.e. this will come in 2014 same time for highly anticipated kaveri based A4 which will give stamroller+GCN1.1+DX11.2+HSA+SoC design
and we all know that nobody uses discreet gpu with ultra cheap APU so in terms of benchmark celeron will surly win coz benchmerks uses superPi(completely tuned for intel only),cinebench (which is fined for giving better points to intel system but still using in every review coz intel's money talks) etc. but in real world performance kaveri A4 will kill this celeron so intel should launch this chippu in late 2013.
