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.
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.
Medfield for those unfamiliar. New details confirmed that both Lenovo and Motorola are launch partners, and we can we can expect to see plenty next week in Barcelona, Spain.
