Intel and Google have entered a partnership designed to improve how the Android operating system works on its processors.

Intel is the biggest chipmaker in the world but its competitor ARM Holdings is ahead of it in the production of low consumption chips.



Demand for mobile phone and tablet computers is increasing and Google has been pushing its Android operating system and linking up with manufacturers.



Android has become the world's leading operating system for smartphones.
