Intel is finally making good on their promise and finally has a release date for the first Intel-powered Android smartphone the Lava XOLO X900. The Medfield handset running the Intel Atom Z2460 1.6Ghz will be hitting the streets in India on April 23 for $424. The 4.03″ device is based on the Intel Atom 1.6GHz Z2460 with a 1024 x 600 LCD touchscreen with quadband HSPA+ (850/900/1900/2100) and 8-megapixel camera. Sadly it will not be launching with Android 4.0 but apparently it will be released “shortly”.
Medfield based handsets should be competitive since they offer a battery life of 5hrs while 3G browsing, up to 45hrs of audio, or up to 8hrs of talktime. There are also some nifty features like burst which takes 10 photos in a single second along side 1080p video recording.
The XOLO X900 has a microUSB and micro HDMI port along side a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, stereo speakers, twin microphones with ambient noise cancelation, 16GB of internal storage 1GB of RAM, WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR.
