There's no news on when the port would be made ready, but mobile group general manager Mike Bell has told CWorld that the Medfield-native Android 4.1 build is not only complete, but it's running on Intel workers' devices.

Bell has said that phone makers and carriers still need to go through the usual process of signing off on any upgrades. Existing owners shouldn't have to wait too long, but it is definitely an exciting time to be an Atom-based smartphone owner right now.
