Intel Getting Aggressive with SmartPhones

Intel has announced its first, long-awaited smartphone in collaboration with Lenovo and Motorola. The Lenovo’s K800 phone will launch in China in the second quarter of 2012, while Motorola will wait till the regulatory approval comes in summer.  With this move, Intel challenges the smartphone dominance of British company ARM, whose chips power many of the world’s most popular phones.  The smartphones feature improved battery life, while also keeping standard features such as a camera of up to 16MP and rapid web browsing and graphics capabilities. Devices accept existing software.  The smartphone was presented in China during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and an announcement in the Las Vegas (CES) Show voiced the agreements and strategic plan of Intel in this arena.  The next generation chip is called Atom for these smartphones.  Under these agreements  Lenovo and Motorola will release smartphones that are based off of the Atom Chip, code names Medfield.  They are claiming with the new chip-set these phones leveraging these chips will allow for up to 8 hours of work time which is pretty impressive.  A lower power signature is pretty impressive and a common request from users.
