Intel’s first Medfield-powered Android smartphone and tablet

by djchamike on December 21, 2011

Intel talked about his Medfield system-on-a-chip for all ages, and today the company is finally ready to show it.
The staff of the MIT Technology Review had the opportunity to spend some time with an Intel reference design expected to inspire producers, good, long time Medfield instead of continuing to look opt for basic ARM chips to win in mobile devices.
As expected, run the prototype shown at MIT optimized for Intel Android Gingerbread for its x86 processors.
MIT will unfortunately not in the hardware details, saying only that the same size as the iPhone 4 and a bit easier – because they saw in the first plastic.

A detailed mention is phone is its impressive 8-mega pixel camera. Intel in a burst mode, the shooting of 10 images at full resolution, built in less than a second. Intel, Stephen Smith, said that the magic will allow the camera developed by the combination of image processing logic on the chip, Medfield, and a layer of software, the code of Silicon Hive – which Intel acquired in March. Smith also mentioned that the Medfield chip optimizations that Android belong to accelerate the implementation and delivery of web-browsing.

Although details are scarce, the critics seem to be impressed by the MIT Medfield phone, saying it is “to use powerful and pleasant.” They also mention that the phone is capable of streaming video quality of Blu-ray, HDTV, probably thanks to the Intel WiDi.
Intel also showed a tablet, the ice cream sandwich was. All MIT is mentioned on the list that it is “much more pleasant to use” the large number of honeycomb tablets on the market, and that was about the same size and weight as an iPad, but wore a slightly large screen (10, 1-I Tab thinking galaxy or less).

Intel OEM devices offers advice and create a marketing campaign in the first half of 2012. Developed a way back in 2009, Nokia on the chips and plans to roughly 450 million units in 2013 to use use signed. We also heard that the chips are 50% cheaper than the current atoms, which is crucial for Intel hopes to compete with the legion of low-cost ARM processors on the market.
