Then again, Technology Review’s report (toward the end of the post) that Intel’s Medfield chips are built “specifically to speed up Android apps and Web browsing” is quite the teaser. You’d like to hear that everything, of course, was just lag-free and smooth, like many iPhone and iPad enthusiasts claim is a major differentiation between iOS and Android. But given the camera improvements in Ice Cream Sandwich, and Intel’s specialized chips, Android could possibly run smoother in most places on Intel.
All that is filed under the “Until We Get Our Hands On It” section. What do you think about the possibility of another chip maker getting a shot at powering Android?
