Participants can also provide a description of the code used in the game, that can be tested in an Android 4.0.4 emulator courtesy of the Intel website here. Intel will offer a grand prize of $25,000 and prizes of $1,000 per month over the 4 months when the competition takes place. It all started earlier this month and it will last till November 6th.

    ARM CPUs are ruling the smartphone and tablet market right now, with most programs being written for that architecture. Intel may be big on desktops, but the future is mobile so they want to be on the Android bandwagon before it’s too late. Lava International, Orange, Lenovo and Motorola are working or have already unveiled Android-based handsets with Intel CPUs, so Intel is evolving in this field and now looks for the support of the devs.
