Intel Reference Design aims to deliver Android updates within two weeks of release

Intel wants to make it much easier for Android users to stay up to date with the latest platform releases. To do so, it has created a new Intel Reference Design Program for Android. Announced at IDF, the new program is a commitment to bringing Intel-based devices to market much easier. What’s more, the system will help streamline the process of getting updates out to customers in a much timelier manner.

“It’s exciting to see Intel bring their years of expertise in reference designs to Android… and speed up time-to-market for manufacturers…The result will be… devices… with an operating system that is up-to-date…offering a great overall user experience. – Hiroshi Lockheimer, VP of Engineering for Android, Google

According to Intel, any device shipped using the Intel Reference Design for Android will get updates within two weeks of an Android Open Source Project (AOSP) update. And, as if that’s not good enough, Intel is promising to support these devices for two years after launch.
