Intel finally getting into Smartphones with new Google Android Partnership

Intel announced at the IDF 2011 Conference that they work with Google to optimize Android for Intel Architecture.

Intel struggles to get their CPUs into smartphones and tablets. This is possibly to finally change. At the IDF 2011, Intel announced that they will work with Google to enable and optimize future versions of Android for Intel's family of low power Atom processors. This means that future versions of the Android platform will support Intel technology in addition to other architectures.

"By optimizing the Android platform for Intel architecture, we bring a powerful new capability to market that will accelerate more industry adoption and choice, and bring exciting new products to market that harness the combined potential of Intel technology and the Android platform," said Intel President and CEO Paul Otellini."Together we are accelerating Intel architecture and bringing new levels of innovation to a maturing Android platform."

"Combining Android with Intel's low power smartphone roadmap opens up more opportunity for innovation and choice," said Andy Rubin, Senior Vice President of Mobile at Google. "This collaboration will drive the Android ecosystem forward."

If this is bad news for ARM and NVIDIA remains to be seen. Both companies have made already a name for themselves to power mobile devices. May the best Chip win!
