Android 4.1 Jelly Bean ported to Intel Atom, just before Intel-Motorola event
The announcement comes just five days before a joint event of Intel and Motorola when the two companies are expected to announce a brand new device with edge-to-edge screen and performance boost. Hopefully, the new device will run on Jelly Bean.
When it comes to first wave of Intel Atom smartphones released earlier this year on either Gingerbread or Ice Cream Sandwich, the update timetable is all in carriers’ hands, according to Intel mobile computing head Mike Bell.
"We can't put it on the phones. We have to give it to the carriers to put on the phones and they go through acceptance testing," Bell said.
Currently, smartphones based on Intel silicon feature the Intel Atom Z2460 single-core chip, and the new generation of hardware is expected to double the number of cores and bring noticeable improvement in performance.
Intel is also readying its first 22nm chips from the Merrifield family in 2013. They are expected to allow much longer lasting battery life compared to the current Atom smartphones where chips are built using 32nm manufacturing technology.

Get that phone out soon. Many would be happier than this rather than the iPhone 5.

Intel is way too slow on mobile chip development...they need to put in some serious effort...they are concentrating only on Atom for WIn8 tablets...hope mobile phones will get bigger chunk of their attention in near future!

I just got back from being at the Intel IDF for a couple days, and I think you will be very pleasantly surprised shortly.
