Intel Intel has been working lately on "Atomising" the Android mobile OS in lieu of the upcoming Froyo (or 2.2) release so that it can be installed natively on x86 devices-- Atom-based netbooks in particular. Says Renee James, Senior VP for software and services at Intel: "Our expectation is that [native x86 Android] will be based on the Froyo release and will be available this summer to developers... [it] wasn't tremendously difficult, as we have a lot experience in Linux". The fun is supposed to arrive for developers this summer.

I've been looking at getting one of those cheap chinese 7" netbooks with the ARM processor on ebay, particularly one of the ones that comes with google android installed instead of windows ce

do you have to pay to be a developer to have access to the developer builds of android? I'd love to try this out on my atom mini-itx desktop system just to see how it runs.
