Motorola and Intel announce the RAZR i

This morning in London, Motorola kicked off its event with Intel to announce its latest Android phone called the Razr i. The Razr i is a unique phone because its the first to carry Intel’s 2GHz processor. Inside of the phone is some interesting features such as Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a 4.3inch qHD edge-to-edge display, Near Field Communications (NFC), a 2000 mAh battery and a 1080p 8MP camera (which impressively, takes 10 pictures per second).

Other noteworthy features include the usual Corning Gorilla Glass and KEVLAR backing made by DuPont. Of course, Motorola was thrilled about its partnership with Intel, as the company in its press release had this to say:

“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.”

The device will launch in the beginning of October with UK partners Orange, T-Mobile, Virgin, Tesco and Phones 4U. There’s no word to when it’ll hit the United States. We have our doubts whether it’ll ever come to our shores, because Verizon has an exclusive deal with the Razr name, and the company already has three other Razr’s hitting its stores in the coming weeks. So seeing this alongside the others, makes no sense. That said, who knows, Big Red may still bring in the Razr i, as it continues to bleed the Razr name dry.
