Intel® Wireless Display on an Intel-powered "San Diego" Android phone from Orange

The first generation of "Intel Inside" Android phones has arrived - the XOLO X900 was launched on 22 April 2012 in India and in the United Kingdom, it was launched on June 6 2012 as Orange San Diego. In France, it is known as Orange avec Intel Inside.

In this post I want to show the hardware capabilities of the Intel-powered phone, when it comes to Intel® Wireless Display. To show this I am using my retailSan Diego Orange.

What I mean... Well, a phone translating some H.264 stream encoded with a special profile. A receiver gets this stream over dedicated WiFi channel, decodes it and displays the video on a TV. My question: is it possible to get the stream using "usual" WiFi adapter and record it right into a video file, without displaying? It'd be great feature to capture video sequence, example: you play a game and then upload a level's solution on YouTube.


@ Andrew - Yes we are aware of it and work on future iteration with multiple antennas. But for now Wireless Display is a nice feature to connect to the TV set and show captured pictures and movie clips in a fast and convenient way without searching for a cable and being limited to sit 2-3m next to the TV set.

@Dmitry - what do you mean by capture a video stream? regarding the gallery, yes its a template issue and I will manual html format the article today!



Did I ever think to live to see this happy day!? :))))

On a serious note, Björn, is it possible to capture an entire video stream somehow? It'd be a killer feature! Tried to explore it using usual laptop, but without any success. Any thoughts?


It seem impractical to only have a single antenna. When I buy this in the US, will I get an Intel Inside phone with the wireless networking and wireless display? Seems like a deal breaker to me.
