+ - Intel's plans for x86 Android, smartphones, and ta->

MrSeb writes: "From the story: "Last week, Intel announced that it had added x86 optimizations to Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, but the text of the announcement and included quotes were vague and a bit contradictory given the open nature of Android development. After discussing the topic with Intel we’ve compiled a laundry list of the company’s work in Gingerbread and ICS thus far, and offered a few of our own thoughts on what to expect in 2012 as far as x86-powered smartphones and tablets are concerned." Main points: Intel isn't just a chip maker (it has oodles of software experience); Android's Native Development Kit now includes support for x86 and MMX/SSE instruction sets and can be used to compile dual x86/ARM, "fat" binaries; and development tools like Vtune and Intel Graphics Performance Analyzer are on their way to Android."
