Intel debuted its "Lexington" platform this week at the Consumer Electronics Show, touting the low-cost, low-power Atom Z2420 processor aimed at the value smartphone marketplace. Devices may be forthcoming from firms such as Acer, Lava International and Safaricom. "The addition of the low-power Atom platform enables Intel to address new market segments and further rounds out our expanding portfolio of smartphone offerings," Intel's Mike Bell says.
