ARM is very busy at the MWC show this year and it has announced another partnership with ST-Ericsson to enable Android OS to operate on the next generation ARM multicore mobile platforms. The new partnership will allow Android to be optimized to take advantage of all the ARM Symmetric Multi Processing platform offers for performance and usability.

Android is specifically being optimized for operation on the ST-Ericsson U8500 platform using an ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore processor. The two firms claim that the optimization will allow for multitasking and peak performance while maintain a low power consumption profile.

Optimization of the platform by ST-Ericsson and ARM is expected to allow smartphones to be brought to market that can be offered at the cost and power consumption of traditional feature phones. The ST-Ericsson U8500 platform uses an ARM multicore Cortex-A9 processor and a Mali-400 GPU.
