Intel is working with Google to develop Android Honeycomb tablets running on Atom based Oak Trail chips, according to a PC World report . The first tablets are expected to be available in the second quarter.
Currently Android 3.0 is only available on ARM processors but Intel and Google have already worked together on a version of Android for TVs and set-top boxes that run on Atom processors.
Tablets based on Oak Trail chips will come in multiple screen sizes and configurations.
“Oak Trail chips won’t be outstanding on power consumption, but Intel will better compete with ARM as the chips become smaller and faster” according to Intel’s general manager Bill Kircos.
Here at Technology-Headlines we look forward to seeing just how power efficient these new Atom Oak Trail chips will be. After all with mobile, power efficiency is key.
