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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
