Developers at the Android-x86 Project have released a version of Android 4.0.1 that will run on devices that use Intel's x86 architecture. According to the developers, features such as Wi-fi, multitouch, and OpenGL ES Hardware acceleration for AMD Radeon chipsets functions properly. However, sound, camera, and ethernet support aren't yet included. Google and Intel in September committed to supporting Android on Intel's Atom processors, in addition to ARM. Google and Intel believe that this will help smartphone manufacturers and wireless network operators take advantage of Intel's strengths and the x86 developer ecosystem to realize economies of scale and reduce the time it takes to get certain products to market. The Android-x86 Project has already released x86 versions of Android for systems 2.2, 2.3, and 3.2.
