Intel "Intel announced that Lava International, a cell phone company in India, has launched the XOLO X900. The device will launch on April 23 in India and will be sold through Croma, a big retail chain in India. XOLO X900 features a 1.6GHz Atom Z2460 (a.k.a. Medfield) with Intel Hyper Threading Technology, 400 MHz graphics, a 4-inch 1024x600 display, full 1080p HD video encoding and playback, a 1-megapixel camera up front, an 8-megapixel camera in the back, and support for HSPA+ 3G connectivity. The phone will ship with Android Gingerbread but Intel is already promising an OTA update to Ice Cream Sandwich. The phone is priced around INR 22000 (around USD 425)."

Questions: How would you rate MeeGo compared to some of the embedded Linux OSes for netbooks like Expressgate/SplashTop? How is the boot time? app support? Do you dual boot and if so how hard was it to set up? How about drivers, how stable are they?

Because while I have the EEE PC and love Expressgate (6 seconds cold boot and tons of apps) I'd love to find something similar for my customers with Atom based like the Dell mini 9.

As for TFA this is something I figured would happen sooner or later, as both Intel with atom and AMD with bobcat keep coming up with lower and lower powered chips while at the same time ARM seems to be sucking ever more power as it tries to get higher performance but in the end even low end Atom and Bobcat just stomps ARM when it comes to IPC. I wouldn't be surprised to see Intel and AMD splitting the mobile segment with ARM in the next two years as folks want their phones and tablets to do more and more stuff which ends up negating the whole point of ARM which was a simple design that sipped power.
