Intel's Q3 earnings report has dropped today, bringing word of a $13.5 billion revunue for the quarter. While representing a dip year-on-year, the figures still beat the analyst estimates. A global downturn in PC sales can be held partly accountable for the drop, with CEO Paul Otellini saying in a statement; "Our third-quarter results reflected a continuing tough economic environment."
Intel is a new player to the Android world, but almost no details were spoken during their investor call of the chip giants venture into the mobile marketplace. They did, however, discuss briefly the overall progress being made, pointing to the recent launch of the 2.0GHz Motorola RAZR i -- see our review for more.

Furthermore, no mention was made of any OEM's that Intel may be working in partnership with for projects during 2013.
