Intel Unveils Its First Smartphone: Xolo X900

Last year we heard Intel was talking about powering smartphones and tablets and these stories weren’t rumoured. As at December last year, a prototype for an Intel powered smartphone running Android surfaced. Even though Intel didn’t really say they were going to be making their own hardware, the news isn’t shocking at all.

They have announced their first smartphone called the Xolo X900, and it will be expected to hit the market by April 24 with Indian carrier, Lava. The phone arrives ahead of the Lenovo k800 and the Santa Clara which where originally proposed to be the first Atom phones on the market.

With its elegant 4.03-inch. 1024 x 600 resolution screen, the smartphhone is powered by a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom Z2460 processor and also includes a one mega-pixel front facing camera and an 8 mega-pixel rear-facing camera. The Xolo X900 runs on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and is upgradable to Android 4.0. It will be available in 16GB internal storage and will retail for around $420.
