ZTE Announced U950, Probably the Cheapest Tegra 3 Smartphone

Chinese manufacturer ZTE has announced its new U950 Android mobile, which features a quad-core processor and a low price tag of $160.

The ZTE U950 measures in at 9mm thick, and features a 4.3-inch display and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Inside youíll find a 1.3GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 SoC and 1GB of RAM. Thereís a rear 5MP camera, and VGA-resolution front camera for video calls. Sadly, the device only has 4GB of internal storage space.

While the features are all pretty basic, itís obviously the processor power-to-cost ratio that makes the phone attention-worthy. The U950 is priced at 999 yuan, which is about $160USD. The handset is slated for release in China next month. Thereís no word on whether this cheap quad-core will be making its way stateside or elsewhere. The first 100,000 consumers to step up will be able to place an order on November 11.

Intel Rolls Out 20nm NAND Based 335 SSD Series

Yesterday Intel Corporation started shipping its first solid-state drive (SSD) using 20nm NAND flash memory process, jointly developed by IM Flash Technologies (IMFT). Announced last April, with shipping beginning in December 2011, the 20nm IMFT NAND uses a new, planar cell structure that enables more aggressive cell scaling than conventional architectures by integrating the first Hi-K/metal gate stack on NAND production.

The Intel SSD 335 Series is a 6Gb/s SATA drive that can replace a traditional, slower operating HDD for faster access to files and programs. The Intel SSD 335 comes in a 240GB capacity that performs 500MB/s sequential read and 450MB/s sequential write.

The specifications include:

Also available for Intel SSD purchasers is the Intel SSD Toolbox with Intel SSD Optimizer, a free utility that provides Microsoft Windows users with a set of management, information and diagnostic tools to help in maintaining the health and out-of-box performance of the drive.
