Intel Medfield finds home in Motorola and Lenovo smartphones
At CES, Intel has announced that its new processor will be used by Motorola Mobility and Lenovo in upcoming Android-based smartphones, reports the BBC.

The Motorola partnership is significant as Android’s maker, Google, is in the process of taking over the phone maker. This launch marks Intel’s second attempt to get Atom-based chips used in smartphones.
LG unveiled a previous tie-up at CES in 2010, but the handset never went into production. This time Intel has announced rough shipping dates for the new devices.
It said Lenovo would launch a Medfield-based phone in China before July, while Motorola would sell its first handset in the second half of the year with others devices to follow.
