Chip Shot: Intel Releases C++ Compiler for Android

Today Intel released the Intel® C++ Compiler for Android* OS. Developers can use the compiler on Linux*-based systems to create apps for Android devices based on Intel processors, including the Intel® Atom™ processor. The Intel compiler is compatible with GNU C++ and developer tools in the Android Native Development Kit (NDK), and can be used to deliver apps with a greater performance advantage. App developers are encouraged to join the Intel compiler community to share developer tools suggestions and ask questions in the forum. For a limited time, the compiler is available now as a free download.
