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

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.

Gingerbread for x86 released: Android 2.3 for your PC

Gingerbread may only be on one commercially available smartphone right now, but if you fancy Android 2.3 on your PC then there's already a suitable build. The Android-x86 project has managed to craft an early - but functional - Gingerbread release for Intel processors. Right now sound and WiFi work, but ethernet, 3D and mouse control are still works-in-progress. It's the handiwork of cwhuang, and you'll need a 64-bit build environment and Java 1.6. [via Twitter]

Intel x86 Android 2.2 port due in next two months

Intel are planning to release an x86 version of Android 2.2 Froyo sometime within the next two months, in the hope that the release will encourage developers to use the fashionable Google platform on Atom based netbooks and tablets.  Speaking to APC, Intel's senior VP for software and services Renee James confirmed that not only was the project underway for a summer release, the company would be feeding back their code into the open-source project for other Android developers to take advantage of. "All of the (x86) code will be fed back into the open branch that will be created for x86" he explained, going on to suggest that the process as a whole hadn't been especially troublesome for Intel's engineers.  "[Porting the OS] wasn’t tremendously difficult, as we have a lot experience in Linux" he said.
