LG Gives an Intel-Powered Smartphone A Second Chance at CES2012?
Well, another try is mostly considered no real effort at all. If we remember, LG announced a Smartphone back at CES 2011 that ran the Intel Atom Moorestown x86 Architecture. Android was fit to run the new processor, but the Smartphone was sadly ditched because of a weird “lack of marketability”, though we’re still not sure if this was on LG’s or Intel’s behalf.
Now after we recently heard that Intel is planning to get serious about mobile, recent reports from the Korea Times mention that LG and Intel will give this whole idea a second try. We’re still not sure what the phone will look like, or if it will even be a fit competitor to current Quad-core standards we already see in the market, but hey, we’ll give the guys a chance to surprise us in the next couple of days at CES.
So far, all we’ve been able to dig-up is the fact that the Moorestown architecture is pretty much at hint of the past, and that this new phone will rock Intel’s next-generation Medfield system-on-a-chip, which has been shown to be quite good in paper so far.
