The rumored Medfield smartphone from Intel and Lava has been announced. Known as the Xolo X900, the phone will be released only in India and is supposed to ship early next quarter. As we heard earlier, the Android-based Xolo will come with a 1.6GHz Medfield processor, and will run 2.3.7 Gingerbread. Beyond that, we have few details on the X900, but earlier rumors also said it would have a 3.5- or 3.7-inch screen and an 8-megapixel camera.

We took a look at the phone after the event, and weren't too impressed. The screen 1024 x 768 screen doesn't disappoint, and the phone was fairly light, but the physical buttons were clunky and the capacitive keys too short and narrow to use comfortably. There's no word on pricing, so we're not sure where this will end up falling on the smartphone spectrum.
