Lenovo has used CES to debut the K900, the first device to feature Intel’s first dual-core CPU for smartphones. The chip is the first from the forthcoming Clover Trail+ platform, the Atom Z2580 clocked at a speedy 2GHZ. As it is based on the same architecture as the 2GHz single-core Medfield processor powering the Motorola Razr i, the addition of the second core no more than doubles the performance of the new chip over its predecessor.

Intel and Motorola have partnered on a new RAZR i, which is powered by a 2GHz ‘Medfield’ Atom processor. The device is being marketed as a ‘full-screen’ phone utilizing a very thin bezel, while it is also one of the most compact 4.3-inch Android devices as a result of the design approach. It is a variant of the Motorola’s Droid RAZR M, which is powered by an ARM processor.
