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)."

Probably in the hands of Samsung. They seem to be more committed to Tizen than Intel is at the moment.

Shame Intel weren't more aggressive with Meego's development. Heck, just imagine the possibilities if Intel and Nokia persevered with Meego. They could've had something special to go with the launch of this new Atom.

Like someone said above. These chips (a Meego) could've been powering the N9's descendants.

Still, it's all just speculation on my part. These Atoms (and X86 in general) haven't really proven themselves on phones yet.
