Intel Teams Up With Motorola And Lenovo For Medfield Smartphones
Remember those Intel prototypes that were shown off in late December? Well, they’re official now, and both Motorola and Lenovo have announced that they would be bringing smartphones with Intel’s new Medfield SoC to market.
The Lenovo K800 will be the first x86-smartphone using Intel silicon and will be available in China in the second quarter. It comes with a 4.5″ 720p screen and the Atom Z2460 processor, running Android 4.0 with Lenovo’s custom LeOS skin on top.
Motorola, on the other hand, hasn’t launched any specific devices yet, but signed a multi-device, multi-year deal with Intel covering both smartphones and tablets. The devices using the same Atom processor and running Android are said to be coming later, in the second half of this year.
There’s no word yet on whether LG will be joining the fun, as claimed by a report from two weeks ago. Maybe we’ll see some more announcements at Mobile World Congress in February, but whatever the case, Intel already seems to be in a better position compared to past attempts at getting its chips into mobile devices. With two dedicated partners and by utilizing Android instead of its own mobile OS, there’s definitely a chance that Intel may be able to gain a foothold in the market it has neglected in the past, ironically while Windows 8 is simultaneously looking to scale down by introducing ARM support.

While last year the company focused on gathering partnerships and strengthening up their services, architectures and production, now they are revamping their Atom line of SoCs for mobile with a new brand name and a distinctive category format much like that of their i3/i5/i7 line of personal computing processors. The new scheme will be naming the chips x3, x5...
