CNET: Intel said this week that it's going 64-bit on 32-bit Android. Confused? Intel offered some clarification at its China developer conference this week.
Here's the initial statement Intel released this week:
"Intel...released Android KitKat 4.4 with a 64-bit kernel optimized for [Intel Architecture]. With this release, the company ported, validated, and tested the Android Open Source code on IA, taking on the work that developers typically would need to do on their own. This release will provide the...64-bit kernel support for development of next-generation devices."
