Intel confirms it's working to port Jelly Bean to its Atom processor
Intel is working hard to rectify that – they had been promising “a future update” to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and this week announced that they are hard at work porting Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to their mobile chipsets. Intel is hoping to expand its footprint in the rapidly growing world of mobile devices, and successfully porting current versions of Android would be an important step in the right directions.
Intel may also get a boost after the release of Windows 8/RT/WP8, although at this point it’s unclear whether Intel’s chips will see much use outside of the Windows 8 x86 version of the software. If Microsoft’s OEMs mainly select ARM CPUs (and Microsoft has been fairly restrictive in hardware choices for its mobile products so far) then Intel may have to rely on the Android ecosystem to prove to customers that the words “Intel Inside” are a selling point in their phones and tablets.
