Intel Ports Android to Atom Smartphones

Ainsley Jones

Computerworld is reporting that Intel has been porting Google's Android operating system to its Atom processors. The move is part of Intel's initiative to further the use of Atom microprocessors on smartphones.


The Android platform was originally developed for ARM-based processors, which have enjoyed 98 percent of the mobile market since 2007, according to AndroidGuys. The platform's open source nature allows it to be adapted by manufacturers to fit their needs. Acer has already ported Android to Atom-based netbooks.
