MIPS Joins the Push to Move Android Beyond Phones

,----[ Quote ]
| As the tech world readies itself for the 
| unveiling of Googleâs Android-based â and 
| much-hyped â Nexus One, MIPS Technologies Inc. 
| this morning said it will team with a host of 
| partners to showcase new Android-based 
| offerings at this weekâs CES. Among them are 
| set-top boxes, a netbook and a social media 
| center designed to enable consumers to consume 
| and share TV content.

MIPS Puts Android on TV

| MIPS Technologies has announced plans to 
| design set-top boxes running the Android 
| platform. Linux is already a popular embedded 
| software option for device makers. However, 
| building a device around Android -- which is 
| based on the Linux kernel -- could enable set-
| top boxes to run a wide variety of extra 
| applications.



The Androidification of Everything

,----[ Quote ]
| The bigger indicator of momentum for Android
| is the excitement it has generated in the
| semiconductor industry. EETimes reports
| that, in addition to chip companies ARM and
| MIPS, semiconductor design firms such as
| Aricent and Mentor Graphics have established
| special Android-focused businesses.
| Freescale Semiconductor is working on an
| Android-based netbook design, as is
| Qualcomm.


Android Phones to Challenge iPhone Supremacy

| getting out of the gate early on premium
| phones powered by the Google-backed Android
| operating system.
| SK Telecom, the country's biggest mobile
| telephony operator, currently plans to release
| its first Android phone, produced by Motorola,
| sometime around mid-January, industry sources
| said.

| to-launch Nexus One also know as the Google
| Phone.

| start-up, has developed the first touchscreen

| launched Tegra processor chips and a power-
| saving display screen from the US-based
| fabless developer Pixel Qi.


Android is big in the mobile OS game

,----[ Quote ]
| 3. Mobile devices based on the Google Android
| operating systems will take 10% of the mobile
| device market in 2010. According to Forrester
| that uptake will be due to "heavy industry
| support" from Qualcomm (QCOM), Verizon (VZ),
| Motorola (MOT) and Google (GOOG), as well as
| the growing embrace of the open OS by
| developers.
