Yolo will feature Intel's Z2420 Atom processor which reaches speeds of up to 1.2GHz, HSPA+ network connectivity, Android 4.0 ICS, a 3.5-inch display, 5-megapixel rear-facing camera which is capable of capturing 1080p video. It doesn't blow away the best smartphones out there, but it's a start for Intel in Africa.
