The XOLO X900, the first smartphone to be powered by an Intel processor, has been manufactured by Indian company Lava and is now on sale in the country.
Features of the XOLO X900 include:
- An 8 MP camera
- 4.3 inch LCD display
- Near Field Communication capabilities
- HDMI connectivity
- Super-fast browsing
Due to its Atom based chip, the device will also use its battery efficiently, prolonging its life.
Currently, the XOLO X900 is running Android’s 2.3 Gingerbread OS but an over-the-air upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich is expected to follow later on.
This handset follows the break-down in partnership between LG and Intel in 2010.
The mobile phone market in India is a huge industry. Increasingly, Indian consumers are seeking innovation and speed when it comes to choosing a new handset.
Tapping in to this opportunity, Lava has signed a deal with Indian retail chain Croma which will see the XOLO X900 widely distributed across the country.
It is understood that details surrounding Intel-powered smartphones manufactured in conjunction with Motorola Mobility and Lenovo are to be released shortly.
