An Intel processor in a smartphone? It’s more likely than you think. The company has been trying to cram its processors into mobile devices for some time now, with the first sightings at CES 2010, but its taken all this time for smartphones featuring Atom processors to make it to market. The first was the Lava Xolo X900, released in India back in May, then the Lenovo K800, with the Orange San Diego bringing up the rear.
