Intel shows off their Atom 2460 chip running in a smartphone

Right now, at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, there is plenty going on. But, if you’ve been keeping an eye on what Intel has had planned for this event, then today marks a pretty good day. Over at Intel’s booth on the showroom floor, the company has unveiled their smartphone running an Intel chip. To be specific, it’s the Intel Atom 2460.

Of course, as we’ve heard in the past, this isn’t a device you’ll see on the retail market. It’s only meant as a reference device, or as a reference platform, which other manufacturers can use to design their own devices with the chip inside. As for that particular reference device, it is boasting a 4-inch display, with HDMI out put and 21Mbps HSPA+ connectivity. The chip itself? The Atom 2460 is a chip clocked at 1.6GHz.

We’ll be keeping our eyes out for any additional information that pops up from this device, so stay tuned.
