All smartphones listed have the Medfield chip, an Intel Atom Z2460 processor for up to 2.0 GHz

Intel Developer Forum (IDF) 2012 is showcasing several new mobile gadgets in San Francisco this week (I've already written about convertible PCs -- aka, laptop/tablet hybrids), but plenty of smartphones powered by Intel chips have made an appearance at IDF, too.

Intel has heavily promoted its Atom-based chips at IDF, which aim to power smartphones and tablets. Intel smartphones, specifically, will provide three different versions of the Atom chips ("Clover Trail") over the next year and slightly beyond: Medfield, an Intel Atom Z2460 processor for up to 2.0 GHz; Clover Trail+, Intel Atom Z2580 dual-core processor for 2x the CPU and graphics performance, and a next-generation 22nm microarchitecture (for tablets, this is codenamed the "Bay Trail" platform with the Valleyview system-on-a-chip).

The following are a list of smartphones powered by Intel's Atom Z2460 "Medfield" system-on-a-chip, which is expected to be released sometime next year:

In addition to Medfield-powered smartphones, Intel plans to release Clover Trail+ chips sometime next year. However, so-called Valleyview chips in the Bay Trail platform won't be available until late 2013.

I have this phone. That center button is same as the ones to right/left (not a 'button', it is the 'home' screen button, which takes you to the Lenovo 'Butterfly' home screen menu - has configuarable screen elelments to link to whichever 4 of your apps you want front and center, like contacts/messaging/email/angry birds, whatever. That phone kicks ass. Replacing my SamG2...it's not a G3, or other premium phone, but a pretty kick ass midrange phone.
