Intel is porting Google’s Android 3.0 (aka Honeycomb) over to its x86 architecture

During a conference call with reporters and analysts, Intel president and chief executive Paul Otellini said that the company is currently hard at work porting Google’s tablet-oriented Android 3.0 operating system (aka Honeycomb) to the x86 architecture. He added that Intel expects to ramp those Honeycomb-based devices over the course of the year “for a number of our customers.”

Reports indicate that Intel will reveal its Android-based x86 platform sometime during Q3 2011 as “PRC Plus,” yet Acer, Asus and Lenovo have reportedly already signed on to produce devices based on this particular platform, with manufacturing kicking off during the second half of 2011. Cisco will supposedly use the Oak Trail platform with Honeycomb for the enterprise sector.

As for Intel and its Android plans, reports indicated that the OS will be fitted to take advantage of the x86 architecture. Intel is reportedly “improving” Android’s user interface and overall experience. More news is expected to arrive sometime during Q3 2011.
