MojoKid writes "Intel's decision to join Google and become a major Android developer was big news in 2011, but it appears the CPU giant's fondness for x86 support in Android is a wee bit more specific than you might have thought. Intel has made a number of major contributions to Android in the past six months, but the Android-x86 project, which substantially predates Chipzilla's efforts, has been left in the cold. Apparently, AMD has reportedly stepped into that gap. The lead developer of Android-x86, Chih-Wei Huang, has stated that "Yes. AMD provides great support to us, including devices donation and engineer's support. On the other hand, Intel still refuses to provide any help to this project. They closed all contact windows I've ever tried."" Link to Original Source
