Looks like Intel is late to their own party. We’ve seen Android running on x86 CPU’s numerous times before. Intel has recently announced plans to enter the Android game. They are the leading CPU manufacturer and are now looking to take a cut into ARM’s profit.
Intel already has Android running on Atom-based smartphones and certain customers are interested in using it, said Renee James, general manager of Intel’s software and services group, on the sidelines of the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in Beijing.
Most of their leg work has been done by other companies. Intel is hoping these Atom-based Android devices will be a huge hit. With their track record, I expect nothing less than greatness from them and their products. We may start to see these devices soon since they have some working products. The ninja spy shots should start to pop up soon.
