Motorola Teases Joint Intel Announcement, Likely Intel-Based RAZR M
Last week, we got news of Motorola’s latest Android offerings, the regular and Maxx versions of the Droid RAZR HD, as well as the more petite Droid RAZR M. Besides those models coming to the US on Verizon, we learned that the international version of the latter, the RAZR M (sans Droid), would be seeing some hardware changes, swapping out its Snapdragon for an Intel chip. Now it looks like Motorola and Intel are trying to drum-up some excitement for the international launch of this handset, releasing a new teaser video.
Even if we hadn’t already heard about the Intel-powered Razr M, this video drops a few hints. That “edge-to-edge” and “say goodbye to boundaries” business mirrors the sort of language Motorola used to describe the M at its US event; the end result may not seem as impressive as the rumors of such a screen made things out to be, but the handset still has a pretty thin bezel.
We’re quite curious to see the fruits of Motorola’s agreement with Intel, especially with so few Intel-based Androids currently available. Will the company’s Atom-based chips live up to the fierce SoC competition from the likes of Qualcomm and Samsung? We expect to find out in the coming months.
