Intel's smartphone push is in full swing at CES, they're showing off a brand spanking new reference design, based on their Medfield SoC. Behold:
OK, it's ugly. But reference designs are supposed to be ugly. The point is just to show that an Intel phone is possible. It's strictly about guts - they don't waste any time on design.
It's also still running Gingerbread, which is crazy, because Ice Cream Sandwich is the first version that officially supports x86. I guess the Intel devs wanted to show off all their hard work.
In addition to all the usual phone stuff, this thing is packing a 1.6 GHz Atom Z2460 Processor.I know that sounds like it will melt your battery into a puddle, but Intel is claiming very good battery life.
