Lenovo was the first to announce an Intel Medfield-Based Android smartphone at this year's CES in January but the Lava Xolo X900 was the first Medfield-based device to reach a market. However, Lenovo is still on track with its LePhone K800 plans as it has been just launched in China, as promised for the end of May. The phone packs a 4.5-inch 720p display, 1.6GHz Intel processor, 1GB of RAM 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+ ...

Intel may be a giant when it comes to PCs, and the company once even made a name for itself with mobile devices, producing chips for old Windows Mobile devices. In the years that followed, we saw a shift in power over to ARM and chips based on its designs. Today, Intel is fixing to get back into the game, and see its chips start being used in upcoming smartphones. We heard earlier this year about a number of such models that would use Intel's Medfield chips. Now, it looks like one is finally about to show up, with Intel mentioning the pending launch of the phone during a call with ...

Windows Phone 8 Apollo promises to usher-in some of the most substantial changes to platform hardware that we've seen since the operating system's launch. We've already heard about some of the devices we might hope to expect, but a flutter of rumors that went out by tweet overnight may give us one of the more comprehensive glimpses into the lineup yet, looking at devices from multiple manufacturers and for multiple carriers. Nokia's supposed to be working on an Apollo phone for Verizon that will run a speedy new Snapdragon S4 processor. Though the phone would feature PureView tech, instead ...

We've seen this tablet mid-last month pop up at the FCC but this time the Lenovo IdeaTab S2109 becomes official, and it borrows its main measurements from the iPad; it packs a 9.7-inch display with a 4:3 aspect ratio. It might not pack a super-duper Retina display-worthy resolution -- it can only do 1024 x 768 -- but it will be powered by a Texas Instruments OMAP processor and 1GB of RAM. A 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera is placed at the front, FM radio inside, and a micro HDMI plus a microSD card slot take care of your connection and expansion. Everything is packed in a 8.9mm thick ...

It will also purportedly feature four speakers with SRS technology and, according to sources, it should launch sometime this month, with no exact regions being mentioned though. However, the labels inside the FCC archive mention Germany, Canada, US, India, Russia, ...

Each morning the sun rises up over the east side of campus; long shadows reach like spindly fingers spanning building to building. As the morning breaks, tens of thousands of students march onto university grounds with heavy backpacks containing laptops, chargers, textbooks, notebooks, folders and more. Pupils walk briskly between classes, run to hand in homework on time, juggle multiple notebooks, and combat the countdown clock on their laptop battery. One would think technology companies would be itching to release a product capable of simplifying this routine, lightening the load, and ...

This year, we'll be seeing Intel-made processors start making a comeback in the smartphone market. Thanks to the CES, we've already had the opportunity to see some of this hardware in action, getting some hands-on time with the Intel-based Lenovo K800. More recently, we learned of Motorola's interest in producing an Android handset also based on Intel silicon. Today we may have another such Intel Android on our hands, supposedly arriving as the London on carrier Orange. Information on the London was first revealed by an Orange subscriber who had been asked to participate in a survey about ...

Lenovo made its plans public to update the ThinkPad Tablet to the latest iteration of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, sometime in the second quarter of the year. The ThinkPad Tablet was announced at the end of July last year and it's definitely good to see the manufacturer didn't abandon the product. The IdeaPad from Lenovo is also quietly waiting for its Ice Cream Sandwich treat but aside from a generic second quarter roll-out estimate we don't know exactly when it will happen. Other manufacturers are already pushing out OS updates for their tablets (like Asus and its Eee Pad Transformer ...
