Intel-Powered Smartphone Going Places


This month, UK will have it’s first ever Intel-Powered Smartphone selling with Orange.

On 6th June, UK will get its first ever Intel-powered smartphone — in the form of a handset named San Diego.

This comes in time less than one year when the first Intel-Powered Smartphone was launched in India in April with the Xolo X900.

Initially codenamed Santa Clara, the phone will be available exclusively on Orange in the United Kingdom starting on June 6th. The handset is powered by an Intel Atom processor Z2460, and supports HSPA+ (High-Speed Packet Access) with the Intel XMM 6260 Platform.

The phone comes with a high-definition 4.03” screen, an 8-megapixel camera video 1080p video capture, and HD voice for outstanding audio quality for calls.

Interested customers will also be able to access T-Mobile’s signal on the phone, giving them access to signal in more places all over the UK.

Currently, Intel’s processors dominate the computer market, though most smartphones currently use ARM processors.

The Company announced, in March at Mobile World Congress, plans to bring an Intel-powered smartphone to the UK running its Medfield chip. It designated 2012 as the year that Intel-powered smartphones will finally hit the big time.
