MIPS Technologies says that it will soon publish the source code of its port of Android for the MIPS architecture. This could boost adoption of Google's open source mobile platform on MIPS-based devices.

Android, which is built on top of the Linux kernel, is attracting interest in many segments of the mobile and embedded space. Although it was originally designed for cell phones and is only supported officially by Google on the ARM architecture, it is being ported by third parties to work on other kinds of chips and form factors.
