Google gives devs an Android L emulator image for Intel-powered devices

Android logoIntel has been pushing for a long time to get official support for its processors from Google, going so far as to help contribute to the Androidx86 project and release source code for Android running on Intel chips. Now, Google is finally giving developers tools to make sure apps work on Intel-based hardware with a new emulator image released today.

Google had promised 64-bit support for Android L, and had added support back in July to the Native Development Kit (NDK) revision 10 for "arm64-v8a, x86_64, mips64". Unfortunately, there was no good way for developers to test out their apps on Intel hardware, but this new emulator image changes that. Now, developers can test out apps in an Intel environment with full 64-bit compatibility.

This is more interesting because, as mentioned before, the vast majority of the work so far has been Intel trying to prove that its platform is worth Android support. It has gotten Asus to release an Intel smartphone in Taiwan and some Intel tablets, Lenovo released a smartphone for China, Dell had a tablet, and Motorola even had an Intel variant of the RAZR for its favorite markets (Europe, Mexico, and Brazil). The RAZR could have been viewed as Google officially adopting Intel, but this is the proof that Android is giving its support to Intel.

I love Google Voice. There SMS feature in truth got me into it. I am able to send free text megssaes to Bangladesh, India, and USA. It saves me some good money on my texting plan from Verizon Wireless because I can utilize that to text. I think Google always does a very job of giving customers what they require and need. I have heard in the future they are incorporating Voice with the Android. Plus they purchased a new VoIP company which they will mix with the other two to give some outstanding features. I need to get myself an Androind now haha. http://gffwpx.com [url=http://pxcvwogny.com]pxcvwogny[/url] igyhowxor
