    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 £342 ($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
    • 2GHz Intel CPU
    • 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)

    Would anyone be surprised if Apple went after them for using a lower case i?

    I'll be interested to see how this phone does.

    I'll assume they're working on an LTE version for the U.S. Until then, it's not a worthy phone.

    Am i the only one kinda ticked that we're not getting this in the usa? I wonder if there's one in the works already?

    Hmm... makes me wonder if an intel powered droid nexus in the works? Maybe i'm just being a bit too optimistic lol

    Fast cpu but only 1g memory. QHD. 'Upgradable' to JB - just like the Bionic was 'ICS ready'. Now picture it in the US loaded down with a bunch of locked in VZW bloat that runs on boot. And probably a slower cpu for more battery life. Meh.

    any time motorola would like to catch up with the rest of the world (minus apple) and make 2 gigs of ram standard in a high end smart phone will be alright with me.

    really at this point in time not really anything. Intel theoretically will be more efficient and offer more power. It will me matching power with motorola's hardware and google's ever changing software that will be an issue. Because of that I expect the razr i will be slower (than normal) to receive updates..hence another reason why it would not do well in the states at this point in time.

    Um...thats not really edge to edge. I mean, my S3 has a tiny bit of bezel, about the same as that phone. I expect an edge to edge phoen to be literally edge to edge, top bottom side to side. All screen with only a tiny bit at the top for the hole for the ear speaker.

    ...And I hate it.

    Although, it's not quite herpaderp yet; it's still more hermagerd imo since Moto clearly thinks it's all that...

    From the vids I'd say that the phones we hold now (Nexus, S3 etc) are as quick as that thing no?
