Posted on Apr 18 2012 - 6:24am by Editorial Staff

The Verge reports that Intel CEO Paul Otellini told investors that the company’s first smartphone is ready for launch. We first heard about Intel’s smartphone back in January when Intel CEO announced that the first smartphone will be Lenovo’s K800 and it will be for China. The phone is based on its Intel Atom processor Z2460 platform technology. The phone will use Intel’s 32-nanometer mobile chip technology, known as Medfield. It has a 4.5-inch screen and is less than 0.4 inch thick. It’s also equipped with near-field communication (NFC) for mobile payments. The phone will be shipped first in China and the first carrier will be China Unicorn. On a Q1 financial earnings call, he said that “the launch of our first Intel architecture-based smartphone” will occur “later this week.” The company complete its part of promise. To note one thing here, The Verge later also suggested that the phone might be Lava Xolo X900, which is rumoured to be launch in India on April 19.
