Intel CEO promises phones in 2012

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Medfield based
Yesterday Intel announced that it officially supports Android for phones, tablets and just about any other sort of device. This includes Android for phones, Android for tablets as well as Ice Cream Sandwich that should unite these two.

Intel has repeatedly stated that its Medfield architecture will find a way to phones, and it is expected that this happens in 2012. Medfield was also demonstrated in a tablet, again expected in 2012 when this 32nm SoC reaches maturity.

Reference design phone is currently running latest Android for phones, probably 2.3.6 if not some future beta.

Intel said in the press release that this joint initiative to enable Intel architecture on Google products includes Chrome OS, Google TV, and the Android Software Development Kit (SDK) and Native Development Kit (NDK).

So as we said many times this year, Intel supports Chrome OS and the first devices launched do use Atom CPUs, Google TV use Atom CPUs and the phones and tablets of the future based on Intel architecture will run some sort of Android.

Nothing really surprising, but it’s official now.

Poor intel. They just cannot compete AT ALL with ARM in the phone/tablet space. These are the same old claims we heard with Silverthorne and Moorestown.

Ain't. Gonna. Happen.

Dear Mr. Intel CEO, ARM cpu in our smart phones are doing just fine, so we don't really care about your promise.

"Intel CEO promises phones in 2012"

Apple promises to sue Intel in 2013.

Intel will just create processor for phones like other ARM proc makers, so there is no violation.

Anyway if this happens... Tegra can't fly.

Quoting Fuad:
expected in 2012 when this 32nm SoC reaches maturity.

32nm is just outright OLD now!

We have had 32nm CPUs since early 2009. If we are talking about 2012 then it has to be 22nm for Intel to have any chance of competing with ARM.
