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.

Intel Atom E series processors could get Android Gingerbread in 2012

The world has gone Android crazy over the last few years with the operating system and the smartphones and tablets that run it being very popular with users around the world. Intel is far behind in the mobile game mostly thanks to the fact that its mobile chips are not as power efficient as others on the market and the expense. Intel is reportedly looking to bring a custom version of Android to the Atom E series of processors next year.

ViewSonic ViewPad 7x and dual-boot 10Pro confirmed

ViewSonic has refreshed its Android tablet range, with the new 7-inch ViewPad 7x offering Honeycomb on a 1024 x 600 touchscreen, while the 10.1-inch ViewPad 10Pro gives a choice of Froyo or Windows 7 on an Intel Oak Trail Atom processor. The ViewPad 7x - which leaked earlier this month - has a Tegra 2 processor and twin cameras, along with along with HSPA+, HDMI and DLNA support. It weighs 380g and has a microUSB port and an LED flash. As for the ViewPad 10Pro, that has a 1.5GHz Intel Oak Trail Z670 processor along with WiFi, 3G, Bluetooth and all the usual features you'd expect from an x86 tablet. Unfortunately ViewSonic's decision to go with Android 2.2 rather than Honeycomb looks likely to hurt the 10Pro's reputation. No word on pricing or release dates at this stage. [via SlashGear]

How Intel’s New 22nm 3D Tri-Gate transistors will Blast Android into Outer Space

Are you familiar with Moore's Law? It's a trend described by Gordon E. Moore, co-founder of Intel, noting that the number of transistors that can be placed inexpensively on an integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years. What's that got to do with Android? It's quite simple - bigger processing power in the same size package. Today Intel has announced its 22nm 3D Tri-Gate transistors, processing technology that they say will bring 50% power reduction at constant performance (that means better battery life) and 37% performance increase at low voltage - a better job for less!

Intel cozies up to Android, boosts shares

In their first quarter shareholder announcement, chip maker Intel announced that they would be embracing the Bot by porting the Honeycomb Android source code. The move was welcomed by Wall Street as shares of Intel rose 7.8% on the news. Intel plans to offer chips for Android based tablets within the next few months. There's also plans for smartphones running on with Intel inside.

Surprise… Android on a Nokia Phone

What do we have here, a new beginning, Nokia finally getting with the times, or did someone just get fired because they didn't photoshop the right image on a Nokia phone. We don't know which but we just had to post this little mistake up for the world to see. What we have here is an advertisement at a Orange store showing Deezer on a Nokia phone. Somehow they accidentally threw in a little Android love.

Intel says Nokia should have gone with Android

Intel CEO Paul Otellini doesn't think Nokia made the right choice when it came to going with Windows Phone over Android. It's an odd statement from Otellini considering that Nokia and Intel were working together on MeeGo and the move to Windows Phone means that its own MeeGo OS is going by the wayside too.
