See the handset above? That, dear Techies, is the Lava Xolo X900. It might look like just another touchscreen device but it actually holds an interesting distinction: it's the first Intel Medfield-powered smartphone to be officially launched!
We were actually expecting the Lenovo K800 to win the race so we're a bit surprised that it has been outpaced, especially by something coming from a rather unknown brand. The Xolo X900 was launched by Lava, an India-based company that's relatively new to the smartphone arena. As for specs, the device comes with a 1.6GHz Intel Medfield chip, 1GB of RAM, 16GB capacity, wireless connectivity over 3G, WiFi, and Bluetooth, as well as GPS and dual cameras (8MP main, 1MP secondary). It also manages to pack a 4-inch (1024 x 600) display. On the software side of things, the Xolo X900 will have Android Gingerbread out of the box but we're told an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich is coming.
The Xolo X900 will be available to our friends in India starting on April 23 for about 22,000 INR (or somewhere between P18,000 ro P19,000). No word yet if it will also be available to other markets although we're not betting on it.
