I am curious in the performance comparison between Intel Atom and ARM. Another important factor would be heat dissipation. I wish the user doesn't feel the heat coming through the back of the phone.

It has not gone through any certification process from the fcc or the european commissions as in India it is not mandatory.When there is no certification we are not sure how much SAR and other parameters are .. I am skeptical..

The specifications are attractive but not the price tag.When a 10 inch laptop available for Rs 20000/= with all the latest features and why such a small device cost Rs22000/=. There is very big profit in this mobile phone market.Who is earning this? The component industry!

I think this phone should be pretty good. I like the speed 1.6GHz and fastest till date with on-die GPU @400MHz... Cool.

How is the battery backup time (power consumption) published in this story compared to what was expected earlier for the Atom phone? Looks better?...In my opinion, Lava started well as a low cost mobile manufacturer in India,but failed to make a prominent place in this market....because of others, specially Samsung. I think it will still be difficult for Lava (and Intel) to compete with Samsung.

@Frank: Do they mean soon many of x86 applications will also run on this Atom/Android combination? Also, price look high. If Intel want to capture market quick, they should offer much attractive price.

"Lava is counting on Atom to provide it with a differentiation factor in the large Indian mobile market... How is that? Can a user tell the difference between Android 2.3 running on Atom vs. Android 2.3 running on ARM?
