Intel is working around the clock to port Android to x86, when this is done, you will see the x86 Honeycomb tablets hit the shelves. Manufacturers are standing by, waiting on the OS to be 100% ready. ------
Is this wishful thinking or do you know something?
I can't speak about when the new Atom will be out (22nm 3D) but it's hopefully sometime this year. In a speech Paul O. made he mentioned that they got 90% of the apps in the Android market place to work on the Atom first time, and they are fine tuning the rest. They are working with Google to get it ready.
