Intel confirmed that it is close to bringing Android 2.2 to the Intel Atom and other x86 platforms. According to Renee James, Intel’s VP of Software and Services, Intel will be releasing its x86-friendly port of Froyo to the masses via the Android Open Source Project sometime this summer. This will open the door for manufacturers eager to release Android-powered netbooks and tablets, while also allowing developers to design apps for the x86 platform. Rather than pulling out your hair trying to create an Android-powered Dell Mini 10, you will soon be able to purchase one directly from Dell. Sounds like an Android lover’s dream come true. More →
