    There is another YouTube demo covering first boot - I also thought it seemed pretty slow but I think it was running some kind of setup wizard as well.

    I don't think I've ever seen mention of 64-bit Android -- AFAIK it's pretty much 32-bit only for now. You can run (32-bit) Android emulation on a 64-bit (Windows) system but that's not the same thing
    while that's true ATM. now that Mike Muller (ARM’s CTO) back in 27 October 2011 announced the ARMv8 architecture
    "ARM Discloses Technical Details Of The Next Version Of The ARM Architecture...."

    that's going to change the 64-bit landscape OS and apps Very quickly in relative terms, after all the MANY ARM OEM's don't mess around like x86, if there's a market for an option, then they will provide the goods and make a profit in both wholesale and retail PDK as proven time and again.

    hardware assisted video encode/decode as a standard in just about every ARM NEON SIMD device produced now, and 2K/4K never mind 1080P output capability's to name but a few examples coming soon (as in the real definition of "soon" 12 months or less perhaps)

    then OC theres the
    Mali-T604,with on-board MMU and the Midgard architecture design, that Android and other devices should get a nice general data speed throughput improvement <> between the gfx and cpu

      MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--A developer in Taiwan has been making internet waves with his new but unauthorized release of a Google Android Ice Cream source code for x86 devices, aimed specifically at PCs.

      Chih-Wei Huang runs the Android-x86 group, which is not part of Google’s official Android Open Source Project (AOSP). Instead, Huang’s initiative is being funded and supported by Intel Corp’s chip rival Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD).

      Neither company has made any significant inroads into the smartphone or tablet market, but Intel has been making significant efforts on the mobile front, with plans to release Atom based smartphones and more commercially appealing tablets within the first half of 2012.

      Intel has also spent a year and a half working directly with Google Inc........
