    According to Intel, their new Atom-based smartphone and tablet chips will work just fine with Google's latest Android 4.1/Jelly Bean OS. Here's their statement,

    Unfortunately, no timeline as to when the devices might start to receive this update has been given, but it's interesting to see that Intel is making sure there hardware keeps up with the changes. Folks with Orange Network phones should be pleased.

    ^ i was thinking the same thing! the article is far less interesting to me than getting that widget lol

    the humorous part is the fact that you see a gingerbread taskbar when discussing a jellybean compatibility article - it totally ruins the good looks!!

    That's not even a Gingerbread notification bar, that's the pre-Gingerbread notification bar... on an article about Jelly Bean!

    yeah, i saw the linked article. one would THINK (crazy!) that when Intel says "hey our stuff works great with JB" that they would actually "prove" it with a picture of said phone and os together...

    That's like posting a picture of a 2006 PT Cruiser and saying "our PT Cruiser now does 200mph" lol (not even if you push it out of an airplane)

    now tell me how to get that widget - dang!
