Android has typically been created for ARM processors, at least until Intel decided to enter the mobile market with their Medfield Atom processors, but that also meant that Intel was limited to Android versions such as Android 2.3 Gingerbread and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. While Android 4.0 is still an acceptable version of Android, we’re sure that many Android users out there would prefer to purchase a phone with the latest version of Android installed. Well the good news is that if you’re interested in how Intel-powered Android phones perform, it seems that Intel has managed to successfully port Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
However when they were asked as to when we can expect to see this Jelly Bean update make its way onto devices like the Orange Santa Clara, Intel responded by saying that the updates weren’t up to them but the carriers who had to put the update through acceptance testing. Either way we’ll be interested to see if this successful port of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean will be making its way onto the Intel-powered Motorola RAZR M which is expected to be revealed next week on the 18th of September.
