    To start, Intel's processor has flown a little under the radar and had early benchmarks in Dec. 2011
    Intel Medfield chip gets benchmarked, beats the ARM competition

    So, back in February, there were rumors of a Motorola device that would possibly have the new Intel Medfield processor (which made sense because Motorola is one of the manufacturing partners with Intel):

    Then in March, leaks surfaced of the Motorola Razr-Blade (I think this is the same device that other sites have now deemed to be the Razr HD) that might be carrying the intel processor:

    Today, I was browsing through some videos from CTIA and I came upon an Intel article and video that's not getting talked about much:
    CTIA 2012: Intel&#39s Android Smartphone (DEMO) | Into Tomorrow with Dave Graveline on Blip

    Looks like the guy in the CTIA video is using the Xolo X900, released in India, but he says that they hope to have more phones released by the manufacturer partners (Motorola included) in the US market sometime by this year. I'm very interested to see if Intel can actually play "catch-up" with other mobile phone processors. Their single-core processor performed impressively against the top dual-core and Tegra 3 quad-core.
