December 21, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

You knew these were coming, right? Chip maker Intel has revealed prototypes of their Android devices that are expected to arrive in 2012.

The proposed tablet and smartphone will feature the Intel chip and Android OS. You can expect the official release of the device within the first half of next year.

The devices will house a processor christened Medfield that comes under the Atom genre. It doesn’t seem to be dual core processor, but will compete with opponents with respect to battery life and power consumption. Intel would incorporate the technology into smartphones and tablets.

The prototype of the device, which was showcased recently, resembles an iPhone in appearance, and could challenge the iPhone and the iPad by the middle of next year.

Folks at Technology Review have stated that the device is lighter than iPad or iPhone. The  devices are probably  made of plastic,  instead of metal or glass.

The plastic part would impart those devices a clear distinction from the Apple’s products. And this factor could have a huge impact on the popularity of the device.

After all, the attraction is that Intel is using their on chip in their products. So, whatever be the design they have got a distinctive point to abstain themselves from any legal challenges. What do you have to say?
