Intel: Android Not Ready for Multi-Core CPUs

Although I understand what Intel is saying here, it is still strange to hear the company say single core processors are better than multi-core CPUs.

Intel, which is entering the market with its single-core Medfield Atom processors, hits out against ARM and its dual-core and quad-core by claiming that the company needs to do much more to optimize Android to handle multiple cores. In fact, Mike Bell, general manager of Intel’s mobile and communications group, goes as far as to claim that multiple cores may in fact be a disadvantage.
