Santa Clara: The first Android Smartphone with Intel’s Medfield Chip

Want to know what Android smartphone powered by chips from Intel processors to support performance? Outstanding first Smartphone in the UK and Europe it is Santa Clara that bundled with the operator Orange, and uses Intel’s Medfield platform – the first time in the world.

Orange Santa Clara uses a 4-inch HD screen resolution of 600 × 1024 pixels and a powerful processor 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z2460. OS that is injected is still Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but Orange promise availability upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich “in the near future.”

The camera he was carrying was passable, 8MP resolution that can record Full HD 1080p video, and has interesting features that capture the burst mode that lets you shoot quickly: 10 shots in 1 second!

Other technologies brought by Santa Clara is the Near Field Communication (NFC) and mobile wallet. Is “marriage” Android with Intel will produce something new and better? Supposedly, since Intel is the world leader in terms of processor and chipset. Although they are quite slow to anticipate the movements of competitors like Quallcomm who has long raced in the world arena of smartphones, but Intel remains a force to be reckoned with. Especially when judging their seriousness to develop a platform specifically for small-sized mobile devices such as cell phones and smartphones.
