Intel Medfield-powered Lava Xolo X900 benchmarked

If you've been waiting for an alternative to ARM-powered Android phones, then you're in luck  - so long as you live in India. The Intel Medfield-powered Xolo X900 from manufacturer Lava went on sale earlier this week on the subcontinent, and the tech heads at Anandtech managed to grab one for a detailed review. If you want to take a look at an established company that's soon to become a major power on the supply side of Android hardware, then it's definitely worth a look.

Lava XOLO X900 kicks off Intel’s Android phone plans

The first Intel-powered Android smartphone will hit the market on April 23, with the Lava XOLO X900 going on sale in India. Packing a 1.6GHz Atom Z2460 processor with 1GB of RAM and a 4.03-inch 1024 x 600 LCD display, the X900 promises 1080p Full HD video recording and the ability to shoot ten 8-megapixel photos in under a second.

Intel CEO: the first Medfield phone is launching this week

But that may change very soon: during Intel's quarterly financial report, CEO Paul Otellini told investors that the first phone to feature Intel's Medfield architecture will launch by the end of the week. That's news to us, and it was certainly news to those listening in on the call.

Orange Intel Santa Clara Android phone hands-on

We've seen Intel hardware running Android before, but what Orange has unveiled at Mobile World Congress appears to be a much cleaner, finished product than the prototype we briefly handled at CES. The Santa Clara (codename) device comes without a manufacturer, and that probably means that Intel fabricated it itself to show off its Medfield smartphone platform, an it's headed to the Orange carrier and other parts of Europe "soon". What we saw was an impressive if not earth-shattering demonstration of something that would have seemed impossible a couple of years ago - a standard Android smartphone running on an Intel Atom processor.

Intel claims better Android performance on Medfield chips

Intel made a splash at CES when its partner Lenovo showed off the Racer-A/K800, the first Android-powered smartphone to use Intel's chip design.

Mike Bell, formerly of Palm and currently Intel's vice president of Ultra Mobility, claimed in an interview with EE Times that the Medfield system-on-a-chip would make huge advancements in both power and efficiency on Android.
