ZTE debuts Intel-based Grand X IN smartphone

The smartphone will start shipping in September in Europe

ZTE has introduced its first smartphone based Intel's Atom processor, the Z2460-powered Grand X IN.

At the Mobile World Congress in February, Intel and ZTE announced that the Chinese phone maker would develop smartphones based on Intel's Atom processor, the first of which would arrive during the second half of 2012. ZTE has made good on that promise as the Grand X IN will start shipping in September in Europe.

The Android 4.0-based smartphone's 4.3-inch screen has a 960-by-540 pixel resolution. That is a step up from the previously announced Orange Santa Clara, which uses the same Intel processor, but has a 4.03-inch screen with a 1024-by-600 pixel resolution. However, Lenovo's K800 has a bigger screen at 4.5 inches.

The hardware specs also include an 8-megapixel camera, NFC, support for HD Voice and an FM radio. Users can access the Internet using HSDPA or Wi-Fi, including the 802.11n standard.

ZTE didn't announce pricing for the Grand X IN.

Intel's list of smartphone partners includes Lava, Orange, Lenovo, ZTE and Motorola Mobility. With Thursday's announcement all of them except for Motorola have announced a product. But Motorola is expected to join the others and debut its first Intel-based smartphone on Sept. 18 at an event in London.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
