X-bit Labs reports AMD is investigating Android in a bud to push Fusion into the tablet market:
Advanced Micro Devices said that when it comes to operating systems for personal computers in tablet form-factor and the company's Fusion-series of highly-integrated processing devices, Microsoft Windows support is a priority operating system for the company. At the same time, AMD will definitely "investigate" Google Android operating system and watch MeeGo closely.
"As we look onto open-standards market, the Android certainly makes a tremendous amount of sense. That is something we will be investigating as we take our Fusion architecture [into new markets] and we are able to create versions of this architecture for lower power environments that would work quite well for, perhaps, a tablet using this operating system," said Neal Robison, senior director of content and application support at AMD, in an interview with X-bit labs due to be published on Friday.
