Future Android versions to be optimized for Intel’s Atom processors
This work will enable mobile device OEMs and wireless operators to draw upon the performance and low power capabilities of Intel architecture and tap into the scale of the x86 developer ecosystem to further drive the adoption of the Android platform.
Today’s announcement builds upon the two companies’ recent joint initiatives to enable Intel architecture on Google products, which include Chrome OS and Google TV along with the Android Software Development Kit (SDK) and Native Development Kit (NDK). Intel also revealed that its engineers are working on a new class of platform power management for Ultrabooks that will aid in the delivery of always-on-always-connected computing.
