Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) took the mobile world by storm when it unveiled the Android operating system back in 2007. Little did anybody know that this would become the world's most popular smartphone OS and, if it isn't already, the world's most popular tablet OS. Unfortunately for Intel (NASDAQ: INTC), the company originally bet on the Meego platform via Nokia. Nokia, at the time, was the world's largest handset vendor. However, Nokia backed out to support Windows Phone, leaving Intel to reorient itself.
Over the last few years, Intel has been feverishly working to enhance its presence on Android. With an Android team rumored to be larger than Google's own Android team, and a real need to win in mobile, does Intel have what it takes to overcome some of the challenges that face it as the newcomer to Android? Join Eric Bleeker and Ashraf Eassa as they chat about Intel's Android difficulties.
