Submission + - Linaro speeds up Android (

Argon writes: "From the article:

"The folks behind the Linaro open source software project have put a little time into tweaking Google Android to use the gcc 4.7 toolchain. The result is a version of Android that can perform many tasks between 30 and 100 percent faster than the version of Android Google 4.0 Google currently offers through the AOSP (Android Open Source Project)."

Note that there are CPU optimizations only since they have only access to binary blobs for GPU code."
