The world of Android tablets is just getting bigger, Intel enters the chipset market

Quote:
Intel's president and chief executive Paul Otellini says his company is hard at work porting Google's tablet-specific Android 3.0, aka Honeycomb, to the x86 architecture.
Microsoft had always tried to have an OS that spanned chipsets, but never really pulled it of.

What is interesting here is that Android might be the first OS that can truly run on different chipsets and not impact the user base. Since Android is based on Java the users only need to one app and do not get tangled up with having to purchase multiple apps or re-compile their apps for each chipset.

For most developers they no longer need to maintain multiple binaries either just compile and distribute. (more...)
