Intel ‘Atom’ Likely to Power Android Phones?

Going by the codename ‘Menlow’ for quite some time, Intel has pulled the curtain back on what will now be known as the Centrino Atom. These processors will use the Core 2 Duo instruction set and get clock speeds up to 1.8GHz! The processors, using an architecture designed for efficiency, are geared for Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs) and possibly high-end cellular devices. How do we know that they’ll be used for Android phones? Well, we don’t for sure. We’re just being hypothetical today. Intel is one of the founding members of the Open Handset Alliance. Besides that, we’re not aware of any other mobile chip sets being worked on by them.

“This small wonder is a fundamental new shift in design, small yet powerful enough to enable a big Internet experience on these new devices. We believe it will unleash new innovation across the industry.” -Intel chief sales and marketing officer Sean Maloney.
