The Lenovo K800 was supposed to be the first Android smartphone to feature an Intel processor. However, it got beat to the market by the Lava XOLO X900 which was released in India last month. And now Lenovo’s phone is going to be battling it out with the Orange Santa Clara for the title of second ever smartphone to feature an Intel processor.
In the process, the K800 has received an actual name: Racer-A. The Racer-A is now up for pre-order in China courtesy of 360buy.com. The price being asked is 3,299 yuan, which is approximately $520 or €417 at the current exchange rates.
Android Community reports that the device will start shipping in June. Apparently there’s also a very slim chance that it will be launched by AT&T at some point in the future, yet that hasn’t been confirmed.
The Lenovo K800 Racer-A has a 4.5-inch 1280×720 HD touchscreen, a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom Z2460 processor, an 8 MP camera with dual-LED flash, and a 1,900 mAh battery. Unfortunately it runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
