While Intel and Motorola Mobility made sure the world found out about their new, multi-year-multi-device partnership to deliver Intel-based Android devices, Chinese phone-maker Lenovo announced the K800, the world’s first Intel-based smartphone.
The Lenovo K800 brings a 4.5-inch 720p display, a 1.6GHz Intel processor and an eight-megapixel main camera. The Intel chip inside the phone is the Z2460, formerly referred to as the “Medfield”, aided by the Intel XMM 6260 platform chip in order to offer support for HSPA+ networks. Android is the platform of choice with Lenovo’s own LeOS custom UI on top of it and the carrier will be China Mobile in the second quarter of the year. There’s no information about pricing or a global availability.
