    Motorola and Intel Debut the RAZR i with 'Edge-to-Edge' Display and Intel Inside


    Do you guys remember the "Intel Inside" marketing campaign from Chipzilla? Well, it looks like Intel can now add the Motorola RAZR to their lineup of devices that can use that old slogan. Motorola just officially announced their newest offering. It is called the RAZR i, and we suppose that "i" stands for Intel, because that's the chip that's powering it. The only pricing and availability we have so far is not for North America. Reports indicate that the device will come to the UK, France, Germany and Brazil first. We don't have any specifics yet, except that Clove in the UK will have it on October 1st for a SIM-free price of Ł342 ($555). Of course, we will keep you apprised when we find out more. Below is a list of specs, followed by the full press release,
    • 4.3-inch edge to edge qHD (960 x 540) display
    • 1GB of RAM
    • 8MP rear camera
    • VGA front camera
    • 8GB of storage
    • GPS, WiFi, & Bluetooth 4.0
    • NFC
    • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (although it is confirmed to be upgradeable to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean)

    Full press release
    Introducing the Powerful Motorola RAZR™ i with Intel Inside® and an Edge-to-Edge Display

    LONDON – Sept. 18, 2012 – Motorola Mobility in partnership with Intel Corporation introduced the powerful Motorola RAZR™ i with Intel Inside®: the new full-screen smartphone that fits in the palm of your hand. Its Super AMOLED Advanced 4.3-inch display spans from edge-to-edge with virtually no border – giving you more screen with less phone. RAZR i is the first smartphone that can achieve speeds of 2.0 GHz thanks to a fast Intel® Atom™ processor. Jump from a game to a text and over to a playlist, then off to browse the Web – all without stopping and on a long-lasting battery that is 40 percent more powerful than the competition1.

    The power of Intel Inside means you also get an instant-launch 8-megapixel camera that can load in less than a second2. Just use the dedicated camera key so you get the shot you want. When there’s action involved, multi-shot mode lets you snap 10 pictures in less than a second. And with the illuminated sensor located on the back and High Dynamic Range (HDR) capabilities, you’ll get a great shot, even in challenging lighting conditions.

    “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 Jim Wicks, senior vice president, Consumer Experience Design, Motorola Mobility. “RAZR i delivers just that when you put an Intel-fast processor in a beautifully designed phone and add in extra long battery life.”

    “Motorola RAZR i with Intel Inside naturally blends together the value propositions of high performance Intel Architecture and great battery life, Motorola Mobility device innovation and the Android™ platform,” said Erik Reid, general manager, Intel’s Mobile and Communications Group. “Intel’s goal is to provide compelling technology options that translate into great user benefits and experiences. RAZR i is a great proofpoint in the collaboration and we’re thrilled to be working with Motorola to bring this edge-to-edge experience enhanced with Intel Inside to people around the world.”

    Powered by Android™ 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich (upgradeable to Jelly Bean), RAZR i puts the Google universe in your hand. Google Play™ gives you access to more than 600,000 apps and games, millions of books and thousands of movies. Get where you need to go with Google Maps for Android™ with free turn-by-turn directions and voice guidance. And when your hands are full, use Voice Actions for Android™ on RAZR i to compose a text, get directions, make a call, play a song…or simply Google something. RAZR i also features near field communication (NFC) technology so you can send contacts, links, maps and more directly to compatible phones with Android Beam™. Just hold the phones together and tap the screen.

    Designed with premium protective materials, RAZR i is built to go everywhere. A diamond cut aircraft-grade aluminum4 frame surrounds the display, which is made of Corning® Gorilla® Glass, to deflect both scratches and scrapes. On the back, RAZR i is made DuPont™ KEVLAR® strong3. Spilled coffee? Caught in the rain? Don’t worry. RAZR i is protected with a splash-guard coating—even on the electrical boards inside.

    RAZR i already has a long battery – and when you set up the SMARTACTIONS™ battery savings rule your phone will automatically adjust to squeeze more out of each charge. Whether you want to maximize your last ounce of power, or prevent your phone from ringing during a meeting, SMARTACTIONS will automatically trigger specific actions. Motorola’s exclusive Guide Me app comes preloaded with interactive, swipe-by-swipe tutorials for tons of features – no instruction manual required. Also unique to Motorola, the interactive Circles Widget allows quick access to notifications, weather, time and more.

    Availability and pricing
    Motorola RAZR i will be available in black beginning in October in select European and Latin American markets including the U.K., France, Germany, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico with more to be announced. A stand out white version will also be coming to select markets. Pricing and availability will vary by country, so please visit Motorola RAZR for the latest information.

    Uhm, so this is the expected Intel-based version of the Razr M. I'd be curious to see the specs and even more to see it bench-marked against the M with the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4. I suspect the Atom is clocked at 2GHz because it had to in order to yield decent performance Wonder what that will do to battery life.

    The sentence "And with the illuminated sensor located on the back and..." in the press release seems a really bad interpretation of what is called a "back-illuminated" image sensor. It has nothing to do with where the sensor of the camera is, but rather it is a relatively new technology used to improve low light performances in digital camera.

    Back-illuminated sensor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I suppose whoever proof-read the PR is not a photography buff

    At any rate, good to see another contender in the phone chip-set arena. Competition is good for the consumers.
