Intel hints at Atoms for Gingerbread 2.3

Written by Fuad Abazovic


Software in Q2 2011
Don't write off Intel in the mobile space just yet. The company has big plans and of course they are all wrapped around the Atom architecture.

We know that Intel is still committed to launch its MeeGo 1.2 and rock the mobile world with Nokia, but in all likelihood this will take some time. Before this happens Intel plans to launch an Atom optimised version of Gingerbread. As Gingerbread Android 2.3 is open source, Intel will most likely do a lot of optimisations on its own, but we are sure that someone from Google will offer a helping hand, too.

The release of Atom optimised Android 2.3, aka Gingerbread is scheduled for Q2 2011 but it can slip if Google postpone the release of open source Gingerbread. Intel also plans a Honeycomb version of open source tablet software, again optimised for Atom CPUs. In addition to MeeGo, most tablets based on Atoms should be able to run Android as well. May the better OS win.

Sure that you could buy an Atom tablet... the question is do you want to if there are far better alternatives?



Quoting Dribble:

All apps can be recompiled... rigt now ARM is favored because of the start that smartphones gave them. But Android won't be exclusive to phones... I see a vrey bright future for this OS if Google palys its cards/funds right.

Android apps are written in java I thought. As long as they have an x86 jre, and/or if they use a jit compiler like the android official releases there shouldn't be a problem, right?

The core is in C so anything that links to that will work, natively... also besides Java there are Ruby and Python.
