Oooo.......will it have "Intel Inside"?
Maybe a new-gen Atom processor? Maybe Core-i3?

I like the way Intel is headed but i'm not ready for it to power my phone yet. Snapdragon is always a safe choice but they could go with Tegra as they have some of their PC/Laptops graphics with Nvidia.

I know, I also think that Snapdragon is always a safe choice, my opinion is the same as yours.
But for Lenovo, I think it is better to have Intel Inside, cuz this is a laptop/tablet manufacturer, and they uses Intel every time, and also this phone is from the 'Think' series.

Our opinion isn't the same. I don't think Intel is ready to compete with the big boys yet.

More likely it will be just another run of the mill mid-tier Android device.

I'm thinking that it will have the look and feel of the ThinkPad Tablet 2 and will have Intel's phone chip inside and run the Windows Phone OS which will have links into Windows 8 devices like the TPT2.
A mid-tier Android device would be lost in the sea of mid-tier Android devices and even a high-end device would face stiff competition. An Intel/Windows combination, however, would build on the relationships they already have and leverage the high-end, business-oriented image the ThinkPad owns. Plus, with BlackBerry fading, the business market is opening up.

Use a quadcore baytrail, whatever phone uses that first is basically be a giant middlefinger to arm because its 2x the power of a15.
Funny, the Lenovo K900 using a mid end intel is on par with a15 and only cost like $500.

I swear that "Think" brand sucks, it's just not ... flashy or techy.

I always like Lenovo's phones. They are cheaper than similarly spec'ed competitors, so they offer more bang for the bucks. Heck, I can get two of their mid-rangers for the price of one mid-range with the same specs from HTC.
