Intel adapts Android 4.0 for its chips
Intel, in collaboration with MIPS Technologies, apparently works on an adaptation of the Android 4.0 OS that would work on Intel microprocessors. The Android OS is used mainly in tablets and smartphones that use ARM processors. This makes it incompatible with the highly popular x86 Intel processors that power most PCs around the world.
According to an Intel representative Android 4.0 is now ready to work with devices, which run on x86 processors. Intel/Android devices are expected to hit the market in Q1 2012.
At the same time MIPS powered tablets now support Android 3.0. The company now works on providing support for Android 4.0 for its processors. The first MIPS/Android devices are expected in a few months.
