Intel posts faster native x86 Android 4.0 image

Intel has released the long awaited x86 system image of Ice Cream Sandwich for the Android SDK and emulator. This will allow the Android emulator (long plagued with slow and buggy performance) to run at native speed on computers using the Intel x86 architecture.  To update your development environment, just refresh the SDK Manager and grab it under the Android 4.0.3 tree. The download times are a bit high and you may want to try it within the next days. We love seeing the developer tools get updated as much as we love seeing Android phones get updated. Better tools mean better apps, and everyone loves better apps. [via AndroidCentral.com]
