Intel has had a pretty big week at CES, but among all the robot and drone news, the company has also released a smartphone.
The device itself is aimed squarely at developers, not consumers, meaning that it probably isn't going to become a highly-sold device. Instead, it is meant for those looking to create their own apps for use in the near future. Not only that, but the device comes pre-loaded with Intel's RealSense and Google's Project Tango.
While other Project Tango devices have used sensors from Nvidia, this phone uses Intel's RealSense for depth perception. A full RealSense camera is found on the back of the smartphone.
Project Tango itself is aimed at giving smartphones, tablets and other devices the ability to better understand space and depth through 3D mapping. It comes loaded as an SDK on the phone, as does Intel's RealSense software.
The phone was announced previously, however, today is the day that it goes up for preorder.
Other specs on the phone include an Intel Atom x7 processor, an 8 MP rear-facing camera with a 2 MP front-facing camera, 64 GB of storage, 2 GB of RAM and a docking device with HDMI and USB 3.0.
The phone is available through the "reservation" release on the Intel website, and it costs $399.99. It's not yet known when the device will ship, and it comes in white, gray/black or gray/blue.
