    During a conference call earlier this week, Intel CEO Paul Otellini indicated that the first Intel based smartphone should ship within the week. There are currently several possible phones that were being developed with the Atom architecture, but he did not specify which one he was referring to. The possibilities are the Lenovo K800, the Orange Santa Clara or the Lava Xolo X900. Here's a quote with some more details:

    It will be interesting to see which phone it will be, and we will keep our ears to the ground to alert you as soon as we find out.

    The vid of the Atom phone at CES was by far the fastest, craziest phone I've seen. Looking forward to seeing more!

    It looks promising, from what I've read the medfield platform offers mid-tier performance on a single core when compared to the tegra 3.
    I'm eagerly awaiting the advancements that Intel can develop. It is also exciting to see new manufacturers in the mobile game.

    So what about games and such that use native API calls? I assume they won't work on Intel's architecture.
