    A new report suggests Samsung is going to change things up in the processor department with their next generation Galaxy Tab 3 10.1. Supposedly, at least one version of the new tab will be sporting an Intel Clover Trail+ processor. This would be a huge win for Intel as they have been slowly pushing their way into the mobile market, but have yet to gain traction with any of the big-name manufacturers.

    Apparently, their new tech has now impressed the biggest mobile manufacturer, Samsung. Samsung normally uses either their own processor or ARM-based chipsets. If they are at least toying with an Intel based chip, it shows the technology has progressed and becoming more competitive with ARM's designs. Here's a quote with more of the details,

    "Which compete with apple's iPad"

    I wish android manufacturers stop try to beat the ipad/iphone and instead just focus on themselves. I don't try to start a flamewar and I'm an android supporter, I love my GNex, what get's on my nerves is that they design phones or tablets trying to be the "iphone killer/ipad killer" instead of just focusing on "This phone/tablet is so good that it will blow your mind"

    Just my opinion.

    Friends don't let friends power Android with x86. It's just a bad idea. You'll have compatibility problems and where it works, you'll likely run into some optimization issues. As far as Intel pushing their way into the mobile market, slow isn't even the word for it because that implies a faster pace. The Cius had an x86 processor a few years ago and it was a complete flop. The Razr i was released, also with an x86 Atom, maybe 6 months ago in Europe and it hasn't exactly been making much news other than it came out right away that it wasn't compatible with Chrome. They released a new version of Chrome for it. I think there have been some Google TV devices with Atom's but we all know how popular they've been.

    Well, there is the androidx86 project, and they even managed to get ICS to run perfectly on a laptop, but it's just a side project of some devs and sadly intel would never pay attention to them.
