Lava & Intel Launch the Xolo X900

Intel & Lava Mobile unveiled the Xolo X900 back in MWC; back then it was one of three phones with Intel’s Mobile SOC (More specifically, the Atom Z2460), the other two being the Lenovo K900 and the Orange Santa Clara. Well, they finally launched the device, so the Xolo X900 is officially the first smartphone to be launched that utilizes Intel’s Processor. The device itself is based on Intel’s reference design. The launch (and sales figures) means a lot more to Intel than it does to Lava; Intel has been trying (unsuccessfully) to get into the Mobile processor space that’s so far been ruled by ARM.

The phone will be available from Monday, April 23rd via and at Croma Stores for around Rs. 22,000 (around $400). Nothing has changed in terms of specs since MWC:

  • Display: 4.03″ 1024×600 TFT LCD
  • Processor: 1.6GHz Intel Z2460 Atom
  • Imaging: 1.3MP Front facing Camera, 8MP Rear Camera, Full HD (1080p) video recording, Burst Mode image capture at upto 10FPS
  • Battery: 1460 mAh
  • OS: Android 2.3 Gingerbread (ICS coming soon)
  • Memory: 1GB RAM, 16GB Internal Storage
  • Connectivity: WiFi b/g/n, NFC, Bluetooth 2.1, USB 2.0, Quadband GSM, Quadband HSPA+
Intel has also worked to ensure app compatibility on the device with all apps that have been basically made for ARM devices by means of a software layer, but we’re not sure what will work and what won’t right out of the box. The battery life has been quoted as upto 7.8 hours of 3G talk time, but it’ll be interesting to see how this holds up to actual daily use.
