May 31, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

If you would remember, Lenovo had sometime ago touted the Lenovo K800 LePhone in gay abandon. That was when the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show was in session in Las Vegas.

The LePhone, also known as IdeaPhone outside China, appeared promising in its Gingerbread avatar when it was first shown.

Again, a week ago, we heard that the phone was gearing up to make its market entry in China. Today, we have stumbled upon info that says the Intel Medfield-powered Lenovo K800 is ready to go home with anticipating customers.

The phone was much talked about for its collaboration of two bigwigs in computer technology – Lenovo and Intel. With Lenovo getting active with LePhone K800, we are hopeful that it will lead to many more innovations to come.

The Lenovo device is no second in features compared to the similarly-priced competitors. The LePhone K800 will feature an Intel Atom Z2460 processor that employs hyper-threading technology to extract maximum performance.

On the display front, it has a 4.5-inch IPS screen that will flaunt Android 2.3.7 OS. Under the hood, it runs a 400 MHz GPU, suitably supported by 1GB RAM.

The LePhone also boasts a massive internal memory of 16GB. It has an 8 megapixel rear camera for taking pictures and a 1.3 MP front camera for video chatting.

The phone is available at 360Buy.com, and at selected Suning & GOME stores and Lenovo retail stores for a price of 3,299 Renminbi ($518 ).
