Android 2.2 for Atom netbooks this summer
By the end of August, developers plan to make Android 2.2, also known as "Froyo", available for Atom-powered tablets and netbooks. Intel's vice president of software and services, Renee James, said in an interview with Australian online magazine APC that they expect to deliver a native x86 version of Android to developers in the next two months.
James said that porting Android for the x86 platform is turning out to be fairly easy because of Intel's experience with Linux. All of the source code for the x86 Android port is to be made available, without restrictions, to the Android developer community when the work has been completed.
