December 5, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

It seems Intel’s partnership with Google is on road to create some magic in the tech horizon. How about adding Samsung to this combination?

Yes, latest reports hint that a Samsung smartphone, build on the Intel Atom processor and powered by Android Ice Cream Sandwich will be seen soon. This amazing device will be coming on Sprint’s Now Network.

If this turns out to be a reality, Sprint will be the first to launch the Atom-Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone in the US.

Earlier, the carrier had launched the first 4G smartphone, 4G Android sliding handset and 3D smartphone in the country. At the recent Intel Developer Conference, the world’s largest chip manufacturer had demonstrated the running of Android Honeycomb OS on the Intel processor slates.

Meanwhile, we also get to hear that Intel has tested Android Ice Cream Sandwich on their x86 Atom processor codenamed Medfield, soon after Google released the source code in the US.

To optimize the OS performance for specific platforms and products based on Medfield chips, it is reported that they are still working with the device manufacturers.

It is expected that this Intel Atom-Android merged smartphones and tablets will be revealed at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) starting in January. Aren’t you excited by news of this new combo?
