Trouble is most Android apps suck currently compared to iPhone, speed doesn't help.

We're checking into this. Wasn't aware the problem extended to IE7. I thought it was only IE6 users having trouble. Try using firefox or chrome for now, and we'll work on getting that IE problem fixed. Thanks!

The article pretty much quotes the significant parts of the video clip. I think the most significant point being, any apps written to run over Android should run over an Android-Intel system as easily as they run over Android-ARM. That's what you'd expect of an OS, after all. But Bell says that Android over Intel will be faster, and that they've invested a lot of resources to improve power efficiency, to the point that battery life should last all day. Good for Intel, is my comment. Go for it.

This is all extremely interesting, IMO. So, we have seen speculations that future PCs may run ARM instead of x86 architectures, and now it looks like Intel is working hard and evidently succeeding to support Android over x86 architecture, without the power penalty. Things are evolving in the most interesting ways. The possibility of Win8 running over ARM or x86, and Android running over ARM or x86, and x86 no longer being a non-started for power-challenged devices, can only be fun to follow.

I didn't know Intel had made so much progress in the wireless area. Maybe they should look at the Apple model and start selling their own phones and not just the chips.

Well, Mike Bell did use to work for Apple... and he's in charge of Ultra-Mobility now. I think Intel is starting to get fed up of waiting for others to adopt their chips for phones... and this reference design is almost at the point where Intel has made one itself and is basically delivering it on a silver platter to anyone who will sell it. That's a pretty sweet deal for OEMs... Intel makes all the design investment and they just have to slap their name on it and sell it? Intel couldn't be making it much easier!

Don't know about that, although possibly it would be a good business model. The reason I'm skeptical is, the vertical integration of Apple is exactly why I prefer Wintel and Android. I'd hate to see Intel becoming a closed shop too.

Apple, Samsung and other design their own mobile processors and few more chips. When other mobile vendor gets them from Intel with their hefty profit margin, their product may becomes costy. Intel will have difficult time in this price sensitve market.

A very brilliant idea indeed. There is no need to waste time competing against Google.
