Intel didn't unveil a time frame for when the Jelly Bean port would be complete, or when the OS would be deployed on Atom-powered products, but we should see current devices get updated to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich first. Currently, Intel's presence in the mobile market is not that big of a deal, compared to their x86 processors for desktops and laptops, where they are the undeniable king.

 

Intel is continuing to push forward with plans to break into the mobile market, where earlier this year we saw the company release the first Intel-based smartphone for the consumer market, the Lava Xolo 9000, in India. After that, we saw the release of an Orange-branded Intel-powered handset launched in the UK and another from Lenovo in China.
