Android SDK targets Atom Z6xx smartphones

,----[ Quote ]
| Like the Z6xx system-on-chip (SoC), the 
| Aava platform was said to support Moblin, 
| Android, and the Moblin- and Maemo-based 
| MeeGo Linux distribution. Only Moblin 
| support was initially offered by Aava, but 
| since then, an Aava phone has appeared at 
| the MeeGo project as an early MeeGo 
| reference target for Z6xx-based 
| smartphones (along with an ARM-based Nokia 
| N900 design).

,----[ Quote ]
| At Computex, Shenzhen-based Joyplus 
| announced four tablets that run Android, 
| only two of which use the same CPU. The 
| five-inch Joyplus M508 and seven-inch 5701 
| both tap the 624MHz Marvell PXA303, while 
| the seven-inch M702 runs on a 600MHz 
| WonderMedia Prizm MW8505, and the seven-
| inch M703 uses a 600MHz ARM926 CPU paired 
| with a 600MHz DSP, says Joyplus.


Dell Tweaks Android Mobile Software Strategy

| So far, Dell has kept much of its Android 
| software work under wraps. When it 
| exhibited its Aero phone at the CTIA trade 
| show in March, it kept the handset powered 
| off. 


Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro Coming to UK

,----[ Quote ]
| A remarkably small device given its 
| functionality, the Pro weighs in at 118 
| grams and measures 9 x 5.2 x 1.7 cm. 
| Inside this tiny shell, Sony Ericsson has 
| managed to squeeze a 600 MHz processor, 
| allowing the Mini Pro to run applications 
| without a hitch. Running on version 1.6 of 
| the open-source Android OS, the X10 Mini 
| Pro has access to plenty of applications 
| to use this processing power on. With over 
| 38,000 applications on the Android 
| Marketplace, and more being added every 
| day, there is something for everybody. 
| Open-source tools and support allow you to 
| create and publish your own applications 
| as well, should you be unable to find what 
| youâre looking for.
