Intel prepping x86 version of Android 2.2 for summer release

We’re all excited for Froyo to hit our compatible Android handsets, but don’t forget that there’s a whole Atom-based Android community as well. Those little x86 tablets and netbooks desperately need the speed boost, and Intel aims to be ready as soon as possible. They’ve already started porting, and they’re planning a summer release. I haven’t been impressed by the larger Android devices, but maybe they just needed a little 2.2 magic.

Nice to know as well: all Intel’s coding and porting efforts will be open-sourced on completion. Can you feel the love?!
