Intel keeps mum on Ice Cream Sarnie support for Atom tablets

Focusing on Honeycomb

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

IDF 2011 Expect to see the first Intel-based tablets running Android in Q1 2012. They might even run Ice Cream Sandwich.

Intel isn't saying. ICS support is still "to be determined", the chip giant indicated during a discussion about Android on Intel tablets at IDF. Instead, it was highlighting Android 3.2's support for its tablet-centric Atom CPUs - initially the Z670, part of the 'Oak Trail' platform, but also next year's 'Medfield' and 'Clover Trail'.

Google's Eric Schmidt said last week that ICS will be out in October or November, This version of Android is expected to unify the OS across smartphones and tablets.

Medfield-based tablets will derive from Intel's own tablet, codenamed 'Red Ridge'. It's a reference design for testing, but it provides tablet makes with a quick way to market.

Hence, too, the emphasis on Honeycomb. ®
