Along with the introduction of Intel’s Medfield phone, there has been an increase in the amount of forum discussions which basically surrounds the Medfield phone followed by the potential development of the x86 which is growing day by day.
It is now possible to run the latest Google Android 4.0 on the computer hardware, if one happens to have an Asus X101 Netbook. This project is still a little incomplete and of course hasn’t been endorsed by Asus as of yet. The developers of the project are taking into consideration the working on multi-touch support, external monitors, application support and Ethernet.
