With careful consideration for the development team and the product, a viable strategy, and successful management, there is much money to be made from the Android ecosystem. 32 Chapter 5 The Intel Mobile Processor If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving $25 cars that got 1,000 MPG. —Bill Gates Intel is the original microprocessor designer: the first commercially available microprocessor was the Intel 4004 in 1971. Intel processors currently dominate the high-performance market, capturing almost all modern high-end servers.

2 devices. This alleviates some concerns that developers have about losing market share in new devices. It is important to note, however, that this compatibility does not utilize the new features of Android. For the best quality and functionality, applications should be rewritten for new versions. Android also has some interesting hardware requirements. In order to gain Google’s Android stamp of approval, manufacturers must meet certain qualifications like having a cellular radio, GPS capabilities, and Wi-Fi chips.

The incorporation of Android on x86 is just another step forward for Intel. Because the x86 architecture has been used in so many technologies, from servers to personal computers, mobile phones, laptops, and tablets, compiling a complete list of its devices would be prohibitively difficult. Its wide use has resulted in the creation of tools, applications, frameworks, and libraries specific to x86 platforms for developer use. It all started in 1978 with the Intel 8086, originally built as an experimental 16-bit extension to the Intel 8080 8-bit microprocessor.
