ZTE Geek unveiled: Intel Atom inside, but does it live up to the name?
The ZTE Geek has just been unveiled at IDF in Beijing, but is it really the device that geeks would rush to buy? It runs on a 2GHz Intel Clover Trail+ and has a 5-inch 720p display, far from top notch specs nowadays.

With such specs the ZTE Geek will be more to the liking of geeks on a tight budget. Here is what else it offers:

- 5-inch 720p display with Gorilla Glass,
- 8-megapixel rear camera,
- 1-megapixel front-facing camera,
- 8GB of internal storage,
- 1GB of RAM,
- 2300mAh battery and wireless charging,
- 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 LE and GPS.

Designwise there is nothing too awe-inspiring about the ZTE Geek - it is a simple rectangular slab with rounded edges.

The device will likely sell in China and developing markets, and while it’s not a huge win for Intel, it does show that the company is steadily building up momentum.

No news on the android version, cause most of the Intel mobile I have seen (apart from RAZR i) are running on ICS, at max.

great specs. cover trail plus is really beast. with 720p display it will score more in benchmarks than s4 and k900.

Well at least it's name doesn't lie about the target group.
