Android Central

The Intel Keynote is well underway at CES, and they dropped details on the first smartphone to run on their architecture, the Lenovo K800. With what looks to be a heavily skinned version of Android, reminscent of Lenovo's Mondrian UI, it brings a new chip and architecture to Android.

Packing a 4.5-inch 720p display, the K800 has Intel wireless display technology (WiDi) inside. It's due to arrive in China first, on the China Unicom network. No details as of yet on availability outside of China, but we're pretty sure we'll see Intel-powered Android phones in the rest of the world soon enough.

This is the great thing about Standards: there are so many to chose from.

You can finally buy a TV with DLNA. Now just try finding one to support widi.
