Lenovo, Intel launch K800 phone sporting 4.5-inch display
Lenovo's phone is one of the first to use Intel's 32-nanometer Atom chip technology.
Lenovo and Intel jointly announced the K800 smartphone today in China -- the second phone powered by Intel silicon to hit the market.
In addition to the 1.6GHz Atom processor, the K800 boasts a 4.5-inch 720x1,280 IPS display, 1.3MP/8MP front-rear cameras, Intel wireless display technology for steaming video to a compatible HDTV, and an Android 2.3.7-based operating system.
The K800 will run on China Unicom's network. The phone supports HSPA+.
Lenovo follows the first Intel phone, the Lavalaunched in India last month.
Smartphones running on Intel processors from Orange, Motorola, and ZTE are also due in the coming weeks and months.
Intel, the world's largest chipmaker, is trying to refocus its chip design and manufacturing efforts on smaller devices like smartphones and tablets, markets where it has been virtually absent.
Pricing is set at RMB 3,299 (US$524).
