Google, Intel vow to speed up delivery of Android updates
April 8, 2015
It usually takes months for mobile devices to get Android updates, but Intel and Google want to slash the wait time.
Tablets and smartphones made as part of a new Intel mobile-device development program will be able to receive new Android versions and features in two weeks via over-the-air upgrades.
Intel's program, called Reference Design for Android, provides a blueprint for device makers to build tablets, smartphones and phablets with a consistent set of components and system images. The hardware consistency will make updating Android in mobile devices much easier.
