Intel gives brief tease of Android at CES

3

We're still waiting on an official look at what's coming from Intel in regards to Intel hardware and Android software. (You'll recall how it was long ago stated that ICS would place nice with Intel processors.)

At Monday morning's CES press conference, it was all ultrabooks, all the time. Mostly. We did get a very brief look at what looks like Ice Cream Sandwich on some sort of tablet device. No great surprise to see something like this in the works, and we're chomping at the bit for a little more from the processor manufacturer.

Intel's got a keynote address on Tuesday afternoon, so stay tuned.

Following its press conference earlier today, LG Mobile has announced the LG Spectrum, which will be headed to Verizon wireless starting next Thursday, Jan. 19. Essentially, it's Verizon's version of the LG Nitro HD. It comes equipped with a 4.5-inch 720p IPS display, and is powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz. On the software side, you've got Android 2.3 Gingerbread, prettied-up by LG's Optimus UI, and the promise of an Android 4.0 update in the first half of the year. The Spectrum is also bundled with ESPN's ScoreCenter app, as well as Netflix HD. And, as you'd expect, it runs on Verizon's 4G LTE network.

We'll be back with some hands-on coverage of the Spectrum later today. In the meantime, we've got a couple more pictures of the device, along with the full spec and feature lists, after the jump.
