The Chinese PC company Lenovo and Intel have announced they are going to release the first smartphone with Intel processor inside. Intel realizes of course that the mobile industry is blooming nowadays and the future may lay not exactly in the PCs. The Lenovo K800 smartphone will be released under the codename Midfield and will run on Intel’s Atom Z2460 processor.
The news was announced by Intel’s president Paul Otellini at CES 2012. The Lenovo K800 will run Android 4.0 and will operate on HSPA+ network. It will be equipped with a 1920×720 pixel 4.5-inch screen and 8MP camera. The handset will also have a WiDi technology enabling to synchronize its screen to a TV at 720p. Lenovo stated the new handset will be released no sooner than the second quarter of 2012 and the country, which will receive it first, will most probably be China on its China Unicom.
But Lenovo is not the only company Intel is going to cooperate with: Motorola also is set to release smartphones with Intel inside, as the heads of both companies hailed the start of their “multi-year multi-device” cooperation. All this means that soon we will see smartphones from various manufactures with “Intel Inside” Logo on them. And that’s nice, isn’t it?
