Intel’s President and CEO Paul Otellini today announced their entry into the smartphone and tablet processor market in a keynote speech at CES 2012. Intel’s Atom Z2460 processor (aka Medfield) will power many smartphones and tablets in the future but the first recipient will be Lenovo’s K800 smartphone. K800 runs Android OS and will sell only available in China due to Lenovo’s huge presence in its domestic country.
The phone has a 4.03-inch LCD screen along with HD resolution support, 8MP camera, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and more.
Apart from the first device, Intel also announced a multi-year, multi-strategic strategic relationship with Motorola that will enable Motorola to develop devices powered by Atom processor.
