Motorola and Intel today announced a new Android smartphone, in the UK. They call it the RAZR i, with the “i” there denoting the Intel partnership. It’s not totally new per se – it actually is an identical twin of the Razr M that Motorola announced with Verizon (yeah, Droid Razr M) a couple of weeks back. It’s identical in every aspect, except that it comes with a different processor.
The Intel Atom processor in the RAZR i is clocked at 2 GHz, and it is single core, although there’s hyper-threading in there. 2 GHz is the maximum clock-speed here, and it’s built on the 32nm manufacturing process. Moving on, there’s the same 4.3″ qHD display, and there’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (yeah, even a Google-owned company is releasing ICS phones). And there’s MotoBlur as well. Awesome.
- Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with Moto Blur on top
- 4.3″ Super AMOLED display, 960×540 pixels
- 2 GHz single core Intel Atom ‘Medfield’ processor
- 8 MP rear camera, LED flash, 1080p recording; front facing 0.3 MP camera
- 1 GB RAM, 8 GB internal memory, expandable with a microSD card
- Wi-Fi b/g/n, DLNA, Hotspot, LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC
- 2000 mAh battery
The RAZRi is up for pre-orders already, and the asking price, £340, is for an off-contract device. The price seems decent as it is, and the RAZR i does look good.
Excited? Interested? I’m, a bit..
