Google on Wednesday announced a partnership with Intel, which will help it optimise Android tablets for Intel chips. The two companies announced their partnership at the Intel developer forum in San Francisco on Wednesday.
With this latest collaboration between Intel and Google, future versions of Android operating system will support Atom class processors.
As reported by The Mobile Indian earlier, Intel is looking at a custom Android Gingerbread version optimised for Intel’s next generation series E6xx Atom processors. With this custom built Android Gingerbread, Intel is looking at achieving better battery optimisation and much needed efficiency.
Intel till date has been quite behind as far as mobile devices are concerned and now the company is looking to get back in the arena with this new venture.
Intel has also revealed that it is working on a new Atom Haswell chip, which will be ready by 2013. The new chip will reduce idle platform power by more than 20 times over current technology designs, making it appropriate for use in mobile devices.
