/// Intel Finds a Russian MegaFon for its Android Ambitions
While Intel is still hopeful of convincing the world’s biggest smartphone makers to adopt its processors, a big part of its current business is tapping smaller players aiming to make a name for themselves. The latest company to fit that bill is MegaFon, a lesser known but fast-growing Russian cell phone operator. The company plans later this month to start selling a modified version of Intel’s smartphone reference design . The MegaFon Mint, as the phone will be known, will go on sale Wednesday for 17,990 Rubles or roughly $550. MegaFon joins carrier Orange and Indian device maker Lava as among those selling the Intel-designed phone under their own brands. Intel has also announced a deal with Motorola , though the first phones under that partnership have not yet been announced.
