HTC rumored to work on Android devices with Intel chips inside
Just as there will be Windows 8 tablets with NVIDIA, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments ARM-based chips, so goes the other way around - we will see Android devices, powered by Intel silicon. 

In fact, rumors suggest that Intel employees have been walking the floors at IDF 2012 with HTC-made devices in hand running Android, but powered by an Intel chipset, which will be previewed around CES or MWC time early 2012.

Google's Andy Rubin announced a strategic move the other day to support Intel's x86 architecture in the next versions of Android, and the announcement was scheduled for the same day when Microsoft introduced Windows 8 running on ARMed tablets. 

Now what is HTC doing sniffing around and marrying Intel with Android is a whole different story, but the manufacturer might be hedging its chipset bets the same way it does the OS ones with Windows Phone.

Finally, no more laggy Snapdragon Chipsets on high end phones! The Sensation was nothing compared to the s2.

Youre obviously stupid, biased or ignorant. That or you haven't used an EVO 3D after the update to 2.3.4.

We'll see next year.
Maybe a Core i7 Quad Core in HTC Sensation 2.
:)) FTW.

The more the merrier (for consumers, at least). Which is why AT&T-Mobile needs to not happen.
