Lenovo K800: First Intel Medfield Smartphone
By on January 11th, 2012

Intel is probably the biggest name at CES 2012. It has finally delivered on the Ultrabook concept with more than 75 new Ultrabooks launching this year. Intel also entered a strategic relationship with Motorola which includes the latter building new Android smartphones and tablets powered by the former’s chips. This may be the opening Intel was desperately searching for – to enter the mobile market which is currently dominated by ARM.

Today, Intel and Lenovo officially unveiled the K800 – the first Intel powered smartphone. It comes with a 1.6 GHz Intel Medfield processor and runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, with a possible update to Ice Cream Sandwich on the way. It comes plastered with a heavily skinned UI by Lenovo.

It sports a 4.5 inch HD display and offers an 8 MP camera. It will be launched in China in Q2 2012 on China Unicom’s network. It is comes with WCDMA HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0 and GPS connectivity. No information about the pricing or global launch has been revealed yet.

Intel will be launching many more smartphones with device partners in 2012. What remains to be seen is whether it will be able to beat ARM at its own game, on its home turf.
