Intel unveiled its new Lexington platform at CES with mid-range specifications for emerging markets and two manufacturers, Acer and Xolo, have decided to employing it in their smartphones. The Acer phone we’ve seen at CES turns out to be the Liquid C1, as it was just confirmed.
It is powered by a 1.2GHz Intel Atom Z2420 and packs a 4.3-inch display, eight-megapixel camera, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich — for which the SoC is optimized — as well as a not-as-cheap-as-we-expected price point of about 9,990 baht (roughly $333) outright in Thailand. There’s also a 2,000mAh battery to power it all as well as HSPA+capability.
