Motorola and Intel went to stage together to make their new “multi-year, multi-device strategic relationship” public which will bring Motorola-made Intel Atom Android smartphones to markets in Q2.
The imminent smartphones will be powered by Intel Atom Medfield chipset (a reference design is tucked below) which also powers the Lenovo K800 bound for China.
The new relationship will produce smartphones as well as tablets with a goal to “deliver products that have the high performance, long battery life and convenience necessary for increasingly mobile lifestyles.” Sanjay Jha, the CEO of Motorola Mobility stated that “We are delighted to be partnering with Intel to deliver smartphones and tablets based on Intel’s Atom processor to consumers and businesses. Though there are 5 billion mobile subscribers in the world, less than 800 million are using a smartphone today. With Android as the leading smartphone OS globally and advancements in computing technology we see tremendous opportunity for the converged devices market.”
Well LG had plans to showcase Intel-based Android smartphone at CES 2012 but it doesn’t happen so let’s wait for more offerings to be unleashed by this Moto-Intel collaboration.
