Yesterday, Intel announced that their new line of Atom-based  E6xx processors would features support for Android 2.3, and today Andy Rubin was on stage at IDF with the real deal on hand. Joining Intel CEO Paul Otellini, a Medfield-based Android handset was the star of the show, but perhaps more important then the actual product (which appeared to be a previously spied Aava Mobile handset) was talk of a greater commitment from the two companies to work together to make Android on Intel a reality.

While Intel plans to continually work to build Android support into their upcoming products, the Android Team will do the same at the OS level. The companies went as far as to promise that all future Android builds will be optimized for Intel’s Atom CPUs.
