by: ŠtefanDecember 5, 2012
Something amazing happened this year, something that didn't get a lot of attention: Smartphones powered by Intel chips finally hit the market. The Motorola RAZR i was arguably the best one, but it definitely wasn't the first. That honor goes to the Indian made Lava XOLO X900.

Motorola XT890 gets FCC approval, is it the Intel-powered Blade?

by: AdrianSeptember 13, 2012
With Apple’s iPhone 5 unveiling finally behind us, it’s time to start focusing on some other (and hopefully more exciting) events set to take place in September. First up, we know Motorola and Intel will have something new to show us on the 18th in London, but, unlike Apple (yeah, I said it), they’ve managed to keep the secret rather well while also raising some hype.

Intel’s Jelly Bean ports are ready, now it’s up to the carriers

by: AdrianSeptember 13, 2012
Every major player seems to be struggling with sticking to deadlines and getting Jelly Bean out. The surprise might come from someone who’s just recently dipped into Android -- Intel has told PcWorld it has 4.1 ports ready for its rather modest Android line-up, with the company’s employees already using Jelly Bean on their Medfield-based devices.

Intel plans to port Jelly Bean to Atom-based gadgets, no ETA announced just yet

by: AdrianJuly 25, 2012

The Verge

Intel, the world’s number one supplier of PC processors, has neglected getting in the Android game until a few months ago, thus allowing ARM to easily dominate the market. The Santa Clara-based company is now finally looking to make a push in the Android world, and, while its first steps might seem a bit hesitant, its future plans are pretty bold.

There might not be many Intel-based Android gadgets available for sale right now, but, according to official claims, they will soon get Jelly Bean updates. The news comes from the guys at PCWorld, who’ve had a very short talk with Suzy Greenberg, one of Intel’s spokespersons.

According to Greenberg, “Intel [...]

How it Works: Systems on a Chip (SoC)

by: Chris SmithJune 8, 2012

When buying smartphones and tablets, we often talk about their processing power, and make a big fuss of their speed, and whether they can offer single-, dual-, or multiple-core capabilities. And while we do focus on the processor most of the time, you’ll have to know that things aren’t as simple as that. Instead of just simple processors, we have Systems on a Chip (SoC) inside these devices that offer more complex functionality.

What is a System on a Chip?

Since smartphones and tablets are basically smaller computers, they require pretty much the same components we see in desktops and laptops in order to offer us all the amazing things they can do (apps, music and [...]

Intel-powered Lenovo K800 goes up for pre-order in China

by: Arnold ZafraMay 30, 2012

Remember the Lenovo K800 smartphone that we spotted back at CES 2012? We told you then that the phone is coming out in the Asian markets in Q2 2012. True enough, one of the first Intel Medfield-powered smartphones and the first from a big name manufacturer, the Lenovo K800, is now up for pre-order. But only in China. Don’t get mad at us, because we also told you that the device will be released in Asia before hitting the global markets. So, we’re still right as of this moment.

Anyway, for those of you reading this post who happen to be in China and want to get hold of this Intel Atom-powered phone, you’ll be better off pre-ordering the handset right [...]

Intel-powered Orange Santa Clara “coming soon”, the official name is kept secret

by: AdrianMay 7, 2012

We’ve been waiting for a long, long time to see Intel make a real push in the smartphone market, which is why most of us were disappointed to hear that the first couple of devices powered by Medfield processors will target the low-end market niche. However, neither the Lava Xolo X900 nor the Orange Santa Clara actually look entry-level to us, with their spec sheets recommending them to mid-range technology users at the least.

That being said, we are glad to report that the Santa Clara is finally getting very close to its official European release, which we’ve been awaiting for several months now. Orange now has a dedicated registration page, where you can sign up [...]

Intel Medfield-powered Lava Xolo X900 gets benchmarked, performs surprisingly well

by: AdrianApril 26, 2012

We’ve been waiting for a while now to see Intel make its push into the mobile CPU market and challenge Nvidia and Qualcomm’s leading positions in the industry. While we didn’t expect much from the Lava Xolo X900, the first smartphone to be powered by a Medfield processor, we might be in for a surprise.

The X900 has just been released in India, the only market where it is currently set to make an appearance, and the first tests and benchmarks, conducted by the guys at Anandtech, show that this little guy is no pushover. Even though it’s powered by a single-core 1.6 GHz Intel Atom Z2460 processor, the Xolo X900 should prove a worthy competitor for several dual-core [...]
