Orange UK today has announced a new Android smartphone with an interesting feature – it is powered by Intel Atom processor. The device is the Orange San Diego, which was previously known as the Orange Santa Clara. It has also become the first Intel-based Android smartphone. It is scheduled for release on June 6 in Europe and is targeted for consumers who don’t want to splurge too much on a new smartphone. Yes, the device is priced less than the high-end Android smartphones that we’ve been seeing in the market lately. Aside from its Intel Atom processor, the Orange San Diego also features Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z2460, Intel XMM 6260, HSPA+, 4.03-inch display (1024 x 600) resolution, 1GB of RAM, 8MP camera with 1080p video capture and 16GB of internal storage. Orange will be offering said device under its pay-as-you-go and monthly pricing options. And yes, the device’s OS is upgradeable to Ice Cream Sandwich. But you will have to wait until September for that.
