Submission + - Android not ready for multi-core? (

dgharmon writes: 'CHIPMAKER Intel has claimed that system-on-chip (SoC) vendors have not done enough to optimise Android for multi-core processors`

"The way it's implemented right now, Android does not make as effective use of multiple cores as it could, and I think — frankly — some of this work could be done by the vendors who create the SoCs, but they just haven't bothered to do it."

"Right now the lack of software effort by some of the folks who have done their hardware implementation is a bigger disadvantage than anything else,"
