Mobile handset-maker Lava International, on Thursday, launched first smartphone with Intel Corporation's processor. Priced at Rs.22,000, the ‘Xolo X900' mobile phone comes with high-performance 1.6 GHz Atom processor with ‘Hyper Threading Technology', best suited for multi-media operations and hi-speed connectivity.

The smartphone that runs on Android Gingerbread comes with 4.03-inch high-resolution LCD touch screen, an 8-megapixel camera and battery life of up to 5 hours of 3G browsing, 45 hours of audio and 8 hours of talk time.

“This is the first smartphone in India, powered by Intel's Atom Z2460, which is the fastest processor available (on phone) in the market,” Lava Co-Founder and Director Vishal Sehgal told journalists here.

Lava International had announced its partnership with Intel at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February.

“The first smartphone with Intel inside is now available to Indian consumers…The boundaries of personal computing are expanding. As we enter the India market with our first smartphone from Lava, the device not only showcases the rich capabilities and user benefits of Intel computing, but also highlights the exciting possibilities of what's still to come,” said Mike Bell, Intel's Corporate Vice-President and General Manager (Mobile and Communications Group).

One more option in an already packed smartphone market. But I have no doubt that people will create more waste (by discarding their perfectly working old smartphone, which serves all their needs) in the name of upgrade or trying something new. What a shame. We have made Mother Earth our junkyard without worrying about consequences for our children.
