Broadcom Company Enables Android To Run On Advanced Navigation Processor!

Broadcom Company, a global leader in wired and wireless communications, announced at the 2010 CES Wednesday that they have successfully ported Android to run on the company’s advanced navigation processor (the Broadcom® BCM4760).  The advanced processor integrates bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and provides a single-chip solution, minimizes footprint size, and extends battery.  

According to Broadcom, “this will allow for a new generation of location-aware mobile internet devices (MIDs) and personal navigation devices (PNDs) which will be attractive to both developers, as well as users.”  What does this mean for Android fans in the future?  Essentially, that mapping, navigation, and location based application will be better and more tightly integrated with both bluetooth and Wi-Fi. EXCITING!
