The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

ARM has launched an online forum it hopes will encourage device manufacturers, component suppliers and software developers to co-operate on the development of devices based on its chippery and the Android OS.

The prosaically titled Solution Centre for Android provides a way of contacting and picking the brains of more than 35 device makers, chip producers, software developers and solution providers. They're all part of the broader ARM Connected Community, ARM said.

There's a degree of hopping on bandwagons here, with ARM using the Google operating system's high profile to reinforce the notion that its own chip designs as the de facto hardware foundation for Android-based kit.

Intel launched a developer initiative in September to encourage coders to work with its Atom platform. While that wasn't explicitly associated with Android, Intel undoubtedly hopes the Intel Atom Developer Program will appeal to companies who want to take advantage of Android.

The Solution Centre for Android lives at ARM's website. ®
