Intel-powered ZTE Geek Android Smartphone Spotted At IDF Beijing

zte-geek-idfWhile Intel had initially planned to break into the mobile scene by releasing mobile chipsets of their own, perhaps to compete against the likes of NVIDIA and Qualcomm, there hasn’t been that many Intel phones out there compared to Qualcomm and NVIDIA devices yet, and the ones that are available aren’t terribly impressive. However ZTE seems to have an Intel device up their sleeves called the ZTE Geek which the folks at Engadget spotted at IDF in Beijing.

Featuring a 2GHz Clover Trail+ Atom processor, the ZTE Geek, apart from its rather weird naming, does appear to sport some pretty decent specs worthy of smartphones these days. The device will come with a 5” Gorilla Glass display and an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 1MP front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, and the typical connectivity such as Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi, and GPS. The design of the device is really nothing to shout about, but according to ZTE, this prototype unit was rushed in order to make the IDF exhibition, so hopefully the final retail until will prove to be more exciting. What do you guys think? Would the ZTE Geek be an Intel smartphone worthy of your attention and money?
