Intel has partnered with Indian manufacturer Lava International to bring its chipset to market, and the result is a new Android phone: the Xolo X900. (via The first Intel smartphone: comfortably mid-range, eminently credible, and quietly revolutionary)
The phone is not available in the US. It sells in India for about $420. The phone’s specification is at the upper end of mid-range: 1024×600 4” screen, 8 MP rear camera with 1080p30 recording, 1.3 MP front camera, and 16 GB of storage. It runs Android 2.3.7, with an upgrade to version 4 due later this year. So far, so ordinary. The thing that sets it apart from its competition is its processor. It’s called an Atom Z2460: a 1.6 GHz single core, hyperthreaded 64-bit x86 CPU, paired with a 400 MHz PowerVR SGX 540 GPU, and 1 GB RAM.
AnandTech and ExtremeTech both have good, thorough reviews of the handset. The consensus is, well, it’s a typical mid-range Android phone, running essentially stock firmware (though it also includes the Swype keyboard). The camera controls are probably the only unusual part—the X900 has a lot of settings and allows quite fine control of the camera’s behavior.
