LG and Intel are at it again, showing off another mobile device at the Consumer Electronics Show. The two companies teamed up for CES last year and showed off an Android smartphone running on Intel’s Moorestown chipset, which was ultimately scrapped. LG and Intel will be showing off a second Intel-powered smartphone during this year’s CES, according to the Korea Times. The mystery device will be running Google’s Android operating system and powered by Intel’s new Medfield chipset. However, not everyone is optimistic about LG’s future with Android. “Personally, I doubt that LG Electronics will release phones running on Android software based on any Intel platform,” an LG executive who asked not to be identified told Korea Times. “It’s quite possible for LG to push Intel’s reference mobiles but with huge subsidies from Intel for promotion.” The device is rumored to hit store shelves as early as March however, and with CES just around the corner, we won’t have to wait long for more information.
