Intel Atom Processor Supports Android, Runs up to 1.5 GHz

The race is on for faster, more capable processors in your smart phone. Intel’s new Atom (Moorestown) processors are out and they’re pushing the envelope forward. The new chips can run in speeds up to 1.5GHz for smartphones and up to 1.9GHz for tablets. Compatible with Android, these processors will offer support for WiMAX, 3G/HSPA and WiFi. It might be a few quarters before we see this actually arrive on phones, giving companies like Qualcomm time to prep their 1.5Ghz chips, too. Get ready for more phones full of win!

    cant come soon enough, Ive been holding out for a new phone, computer device for almost two years now…. probably because I would rather spend $1000 on other things and just use home PC or a library's PC. When can I get a sub $250 touchscreen Wifi device with VOIP ??
