“The Intel Atom x3 processor that powers the JOI 7 Lite and JOI Phone 5 is a great example of Intel’s focus on innovation. Development of the Atom x3 started around two years ago, with the team in Singapore setting out to build a new mobile processor aimed at cost-effective devices. The result is an Intel processor designed in Southeast Asia, for Southeast Asia. We are committed to meeting the continued demand for mobile devices here in Malaysia and look forward to supporting our customers, including SMS Network, as they roll out high quality affordable devices that do not compromise on performance.” – Sumner Lemon, Country Manager, Intel Malaysia and Singapore.
