Android Gingerbread to run on Intel Atom processors soon


Android is shaping up to be something rather awesome. It was once the underdog, but it's seeming more and more like it's the king of all mobile operating systems. And up to now, most hardware manufacturers have picked up on that . . . except one very important one: Intel. 

Intel has released a video recently telling its viewers that 2012's Atom E-series will be coming with a special port of Android that will run very efficiently on that series of processor, and the technology needed to run Android will most likely translate to the company's desktop and laptop series of processors, as well.

I've talked before about how ARM is where the money's at, and so it only makes sense that Intel is trying to get right into where those processors are making the most of it. How do you feel about possibly having an Intel processor in your next HTC smartphone? Oh, and you can take a look at the video after the break.
