    Pre render? It's an actual reference device they're testing. I think that's an actual photo of the device.

    Edit: I wonder who actually builds this reference design? Part of me wants to say Foxconn, due to it's similarities to the iPhone; but another part wants to say Motorola because of the capacitive button design. I know Intel doesn't build devices themselves. I am pretty sure Foxconn makes Intel's motherboards for PCs, so maybe it is them.

    A Celeron would destroy a Medfield performance-wise, though! Although you probably wouldn't get enough life out of the battery to actually use it.

    Modern Celerons are basically slightly stripped down Core i3's, and are very capable performance-wise.

    I think it's more likely something descended from StrongARM or XScale, but the Logitech Revue is x86 based, so who knows, maybe it'll be a CedarTrail or OakTrail Atom.


    edit I just noticed this on the Atom z6xx series product specs page (here):

    single-core with hyper-threading (2 logical cores, if not physical) @1.2 or 1.5GHz, GMA600 video, DDR2-800 memory. certainly not horrible

    edit2 didn't notice the article linked in the OP. hopefully "Atom Variant" doesn't mean "heavily stripped down"

    idk, to me it kinda looks like the original droid line minus the keyboard slider (droid 1, droid 2, droid 3)

    Word, I was thinking that's how the Droid 5 should look. Clearly the 4 will not be up to snuff for me.
