Medfield phone places well in browser tests
The Vellamo test, created by Qualcomm, uses 11 individual measurements of the various hardware and software components that contribute to a mobile browser's performance. The phone ranked third overall, behind the quad-core ASUS Transformer Prime tablet and more conventional Xiaomi Mi-One Plus, but ahead of the Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy Tab 10.1, and Motorola Xoom, among many others.
The Intel phone was reportedly running on a 1.4GHz version of the Atom Z2460 processor (which is usually rated at 1.6GHz) and 1GB of RAM. It had Android 2.3.7 preloaded on its integrated 16GB of flash memory where at least the Galaxy Nexus had the advantage of Android 4.0. [via NetbookNews]
