The First Intel SmartPhone - Lenovo K800
On CES 2012, Intel dropped some of the biggest news, announcing that it was entering the smartphone chip market and Lenovo K800 will be the first Intel-powered smartphone.
Liu Jun, Lenovo senior vice president and president of mobile Internet and digital home, took to the stage to announce the phone, saying the move is just the first of many, and represents a heavy investment by the company into the mobile space.
Lenovo K800 Specs
The beastly 4.5-inch 720p device sample that the company had on-hand is running a highly modified version of Android, and while the interface may not look familiar, the overall app experience shouldn't be much different from what you're used to.
The official spec list includes a 1.6GHz Intel Medfield processor, Android 2.3, a TFT display and an 8 megapixel camera with a maximum sensitivity of ISO 3200. For now, the K800 is compatible with WCDMA HSPA+ and was running on AT&T's 3G network -- there's no word of LTE on this version, which seems logical considering that the 4G network is a bit hard to come by in Lenovo's native China, where the device is expected to launch first.
Naturally, there's also 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0 and GPS connectivity.

View PowerPoint on Lenovo K800
Though we haven't get the full specifics of Lenovo K800, we are sure that this Atom-powered K800 is running Android, a highly modified version. Office apps on Android platform are not as stronger as Microsoft Office we used on computers.
It will be enjoyable to view presentations or videos on Lenovo K800 with its 4.5″ HD 720p TFT screen. Since we can't play powerpoint with embedded audios, videos or animations, converting PowerPoint to Video is a good solution.
