Android to be Optimised for Intel Chips

Google Android will soon run on Intel Chipsets according to an announcement made earlier today. Over at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) Andy Rubin of Google went on stage with a prototype smartphone running Google Android 2.3 which was powered by an Intel Medfield chip which is the latest in the Atom series from the company.

As well as showing off a smartphone running on an Intel platform the company also were showing an Intel powered Android tablet. It wasn’t clear which manufacturer made the tablet or smartphone but Engadget hazards a guess at it being an Aava smartphone although no details on the tablet are known.

“By optimizing the Android platform for Intel architecture, we bring a powerful new capability to market that will accelerate more industry adoption and choice, and bring exciting new products to market that harness the combined potential of Intel technology and the Android platform,” said Intel President and CEO Paul Otellini.”Together we are accelerating Intel architecture and bringing new levels of innovation to a maturing Android platform.”

We can expect to see Intel powered Android devices launch in early 2012.
