Intel shows off Medfield mobile x86 processor for Android, and MeeGo tablet UI

Intel has had a string of nasty luck in 2011, with a Sandy Bridge chipset defect that’ll take billions of dollars to fix, and now of course, news of Nokia quite incontrovertibly backing out of their co-developed MeeGo ecosystem.
