Martin had intended to pop along to Motorola’s “Let us take you to the edge” event this morning. Alas, thanks to a problem with the trains, his plans went “off the rails” (his joke, I hasten to add).
Anyway, Motorola has just unveiled the Intel-fuelled RAZR i. It’s very much like the Motorola RAZR M (recently launched over in the US), ‘cept with an Intel processor.
Like the Snapdragon-powered RAZR M, the Motorola RAZR i has a 4.3in nearly “edge-to-edge” Super AMOLED display. There's Kevlar on the outside, and a splash-guard coating "even on the electrical boards inside."
Other Motorola RAZR i specs include a 2,000mAh battery offering 20 hours of use, and an 8MP camera capable of capturing a 10-photo burst in just one second.
The Motorola RAZR i’s Intel Atom processor, meanwhile, clocks in at 2GHz. There’s also NFC (Near Field Communication), Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0), and an unlocked bootloader.
“Together with Intel, we’re redefining what people can expect from a mobile device. A camera that launches in an instant, Web pages that load blazingly fast and a device that’s the perfect balance of screen size and fit in hand,” said Motorola guy Jim Wicks.
“RAZR i delivers just that when you put an Intel-fast processor in a beautifully designed phone and add in extra long battery life.”
Orange, T-Mobile, Phones 4U, Virgin Media, and Tesco have committed to offering the Motorola RAZR i in the UK. It’ll be available early next month, though there doesn’t appear to be any word on pricing just yet.
