Intel is getting really serious about the smart phone industry recently. The company showcased and released a bunch of Android smart phone powered by Intel processors. It all started with the Motorola RAZR i. Then at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, the company showcased a bunch of smart phones, namely, the Lenovo K900. Late last month, the company unveiled the Yolo and the Acer Liquid C1. The Yolo is a mid range, budget friendly Intel processor Android smart phone that was released in Kenya last week. The Acer Liquid C1 has been released in Asia just today.
After all this, the world’s best known processor manufacturer is expected to showcase new Android smart phones at the Mobile World Congress event happening later this month in Barcelona. The company is expected to unveil Android smart phones running on a new dual core and dual graphics platform. And this new platform is said to be based on the company’s Atom Z2420 platform, which is known majorly as targeted to the emerging markets.
The Lexington Atom Z2420 processor by Intel was first unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year. And the Mobile World Congress will feature smart phones based on this. We were actually expecting to see Android smart phones based on the high end Bay Trail quad core processor. But it looks like that is not going to happen this year.
The company has already announced that it is planning on reducing, if not entirely stop, working on its desktop computer line. The company has been known for its motherboards, processors, and chipsets for the desktop computers. But leaving that market to be dominated by AMD (probably), the company has decided to be present in the smart phone industry as much as it can.
If by chance we get to see an Android smart phone based on the Bay Trail quad core processor by Intel at the Mobile World Congress this year, how many of you will probably be interested in buying one?
