    Android running on Intel

    Heres a message from Saturn V from
    The analysts do not realize that Android plays to Intel's strengths. For fifteen years Intel has dominated Linux bench marks , and the Android system software is Linux based. Also x86 makes the best Java machines. The only problem was the power dissipation and that is now a non-issue. Intel ported the Android system software to x86 a year ago. So Intel will dominate the Android phone space in two years time, since it takes sustained dramatically superior performance to unseat the incumbent.

    • So why are we not seeing Android tablets on Intel?

      Are the OEMs waiting for Clover Trail+ or Bay Trail for even lower power draw so that they can offer higher performance Intel-based tablets with battery consumption on par or better than ARM-based Android tablets?

      • Intel's strategy is to push android in smartphone market and Windows 8 in tablet market. Android has never made much of a dent against the iPad until only recently with the 7" form factor. I suspect there will be a 7" android tablet will intel inside soon. I don't think you will find intel inside on larger tablets as Intel will be pushing touch enabled convertible and detachables PCs (running windows 8) to compete against the larger tablets.
