BTW, this is Android x86. That'll run all pure Dalvik (Java) apps, or
those that also have x86 shared libraries. Apps can easily be built
for multiple platforms at once.
It also means that it runs full speed: no instruction set emulation of
ARM. The latter is tough because in a lot of ways, ARM has better
instructions than X86, even if they don't execute as fast overall.
