Motorola Mobility launches Android smartphone with Intel processor (with video)

Posted on 19-Sep-2012 09:04 | Filed under: News

Motorola Mobility is introducing the Motorola RAZR i in partnership with Intel Corporation. The new full-screen smartphone fits in the palm of your hand and sports a Super AMOLED Advanced 4.3-inch display that spans from edge-to-edge.

The Motorola RAZR i smartphone achieves speeds of 2.0 GHz thanks to using a platform based on a fast Intel Atom processor. The company says all this power means you get an instant-launch 8-megapixel camera that can load in less than a second after pressing the dedicated camera key. A multi-shot mode lets you snap ten pictures in less than a second.

"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 brings Google Play with access to more than 600,000 apps and games, millions of books and thousands of movies. The smartphone and OS support Google Maps for Android with free turn-by-turn directions and voice guidance.

Also part of the package is Voice Actions for Android, that allows users to compose text messages, get directions, make a call, play a song or search something by using voice only.

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.

Designed with premium protective materials, RAZR i is built with diamond cut aircraft-grade aluminum frame around the display, which is made of Corning Gorilla Glass. On the back, RAZR i is made DuPont KEVLAR strong3. The RAZR i is also protected with a splash-guard coating, even on the electrical boards inside, to prevent damage by spills and splashes.

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 white version will also be coming to select markets.
