30 Dec

Looks like things will be hotting up nicely in the mobile space next year with the Android platform. It looks like Intel finally woke up and decided to get into the mobile game. Today, South Korean mobile phone maker LG Electronics plan to show to the world an Android-based handset packing Intel’s Medfield SoC during the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next month.
The joint effort is designed to speed time-to-market of Intel technology-based smartphones running the Android platform.

Intel will take advantage of the open-source accessibility of the Android platform to provide its customers with technology products that inspire continued innovation and also help enable powerful personal computing experiences that fully leverage Intel technology across a range of devices. This work will enable mobile device OEMs and wireless operators to draw upon the performance and low power capabilities of Intel architecture and tap into the scale of the x86 developer ecosystem to further drive the adoption of the Android platform. According to korea times :

“LG Electronics will produce Intel’s first Android smartphones that use Intel’s own mobile platform. The device will be shown at the CES…’’

LG’s growing dependence on Intel was confirmed again after LG joined forces with the chipmaker to promote its wireless display or WiDi technology. WiDi made by Intel will be embedded in LG’s Cinema 3D Smart TVs from this year. It will allow users to wirelessly steam high definition content from devices such as a laptop to larger screens like a television.
