Intel Reportedly Working on Optimized Version of Android for Atom

Intel (along with Nokia) still has big plans for the MeeGo platform, but according to news and rumor site Fudzilla , the world's largest chip maker is developing a customized version of Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) for Atom processors.

Details are pretty sparse at this point, however Fudzilla did say you can expect this new platform to ship sometime in the second quarter of 2011, barring any delays by Google.

Following Gingerbread, Intel will continue to aggressively pursue the tablet market with its Atom line by also working on a special Honeycomb version of Android. This is perhaps more intriguing since it's the first version of Android specifically intended for the tablet space.
