Motorola and Intel are holding an event on September 18th and chances are they will be revealing the Atom-based smartphone that has been rumored for some time. In the teaser above, “Edge-to-edge” and “speed” are the two keywords about the upcoming device with a montage of Fighter Pilots, F1 Race Cars and crashing waves playing throughout. The Edge-to-Edge screen has our attention and we have a sneaking feeling it will not disappoint. Let the speculation begin on specs and features.

I wish it was coming out over here!
 
Is it really an event that is being held, though? Sounds like it is simply the official launch date of the European RAZR M (after all, they claim the M has an 'edge to edge' screen, AND the European model is supposed to have Intel Inside). The only thing I cannot figure out is why the same device on this side of the pond is going to have a Qualcomm chipset. Makes me worry that maybe the Intel chipset doesn't play "nice" with LTE.

wouldn't be much of a surprise. 4G doesn't play well with a lot of chips right now. Isn't the intel chip in the phone just an atom chip too?
 
I predict dissapointment. However, I will be happy to finally see atom based phones come into the fray competing.

That's my guess, and I wouldn't be surprised if that was the reason. With how popular LTE is and the fact it's a world standard you'd think chip makers would better support it.
