Intel Ports Android to Atom-Based Smart Phones

After dominating the desktop market for years, Intel recognizes they have a long road ahead of them in terms of smart phones.  Android, as a platform, was initially designed to run on handsets powered by processors made with Arm technology.  Because of this, Arm has been enjoying a 98% mobile phone market share as of 2007.  Intel understands as well as any company that they could do well to load Android onto their Atom-based phones.  Today sees the chip giant announcing they’ve already done just that.

Intel already has Android running on Atom-based smartphones and certain customers are interested in using it, said Renee James, general manager of Intel’s software and services group, on the sidelines of the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in Beijing.
