Well, you can meet and greet if you're a customer of India-based Lava International, that is. Intel-based smartphones are also due soon from Lenovo, Orange, Motorola, and ZTE.
As expected, the first smartphone powered by an Intel processor launched this week: the Lava Xolo 900.

Intel and India-based Lava International today announced the general availability of the Xolo X900, built around the Intel Atom Z2460 processor. The phone will be available for purchase in the India market on April 23 at a street price of approximately 22,000 rupees, or about $420.

Lava also announced a partnership with Croma, a national Indian chain of megastores, which will sell the X900.

In addition to the 1.6GHz Atom processor with a 400MHz graphics chip clock, the phone features full 1080p HD video encoding, an 8-megapixel camera with burst mode, HSPA+ 3G connectivity, and a 4.03-inch LCD screen.

At launch, the X900 will run on Android Gingerbread, but an over-the-air software upgrade to Android's Ice Cream Sandwich is planned "shortly," the companies said.

Intel claims battery life of up to 5 hours with 3G browsing and 8 hours of talk time.
