AMD looks to take on Intel and others in the Android space

Now that mobile is clearly the future and with Qualcomm and NVIDIA doing well in the space, AMD looks to take on the competition (and Intel) by ending their exclusive Windows presence.

Android 4.0 Open Source Project released for x86 processors

Google's source code for Android 4.0.1 (Ice Cream Sandwich) has now been released for x86 processors, Intel and AMD alike. It seems there are currently some very obvious compatibility bugs that don't play nicely with Intel chipsets. Sound, ethernet, hardware acceleration, and camera capabilities are currently incompatible. However, developers coding for AMD processors will find that sound, hardware acceleration and WiFi work perfectly fine.
