I notice that Intel Atom chips support VT-x. Is this feature supported on the specific model that the Jolla Tablet is using?

If so, this is rather interesting - are there any plans to leverage this? Allowing people to run Android and Windows apps in virtual machines could be a selling point. Yes, it'd presumably be lacking the hardware acceleration, I wouldn't expect native performance, but it could still be useful.

Sorry, I did a search but used the English spelling - Virtualisation

@Colin Pickup I really should know better (I authored the "virtualization" question) - provided that I spend part of my studies near London (and those were awesome times). I blame american movies :)

No worries, at-least brits searching for it will find your question now. In any case, at-least I'm not the only person interested in trying this out.

@Collin Pickup The search function is sometimes kind of tricky. So don't worry about having posted a duplicate. And welcome to TJC :)
