Paul Otellini, Intel CEO, has confirmed that the company is working to support Android 3.0 Google Honeycomb to mobile devices with x86 CPUs. Android V3 is Google’s first attempt for an operating system running on tablets, whereas Android 2.x is designed for smartphones. Intel clearly wants to compete with ARM-based chips for tablets. The source code for Android 3.0 has not yet been released by Google to the public, nevertheless selected partners have access to the code, such as Intel.
So, Intel should push its Atom chips in Android tablets later this year.
