Motorola announces the RAZR i smartphone powered by Intel Inside


In a press conference held in London, UK earlier today, Motorola Mobility in partnership with Intel introduced the edge-to-edge RAZR I smartphone powered by Intel Inside chipset. The phone packs similar specs to what we’ve seen on Motorola Droid RAZR M announced on September 5th in New York.

Motorola RAZR i features the same full-screen 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Advanced display made of Corning Gorilla Glass heavy resistant to both scrapes and scratches as the RAZR M surrounded by an aluminium frame. The back of the phone is made of strong KEVLAR material and protected by an anti-splash coating at outside and even on the inside over the electrical boards so you dont have to worry about coffee spills, rain drops, etc.

It is powered by a super fast 2GHz Intel Atom processor and it has a long-lasting battery that’s 40% more powerful than the current competition, Motorola claims. The RAZR i is equipped with an 8 MP camera capable of shooting up to 10 pictures using a dedicated key and its multi-shot mode, so you wont miss another shot. According to Motorola the camera is faster than any digital SLR’s.

The device will arrive in black color with Android 4.0.4 ICS OS upgradable to Jelly Bean, starting early October in select European and Latin American markets including the UK, France, Germany, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico with more markets to be announced. There’s also a white version on the way after that. Pricing details where not revealed however we hear that UK retailer Clove will begin selling the SIM-free device for £342 (about $550) on October 1st.
