    Motorola's bootloader unlock program took forever to get here, and when it did, it underwhelmed us by not supporting previously-released hardware. Then things got even more depressing when we learned that Motorola would be selling separate Developer Editions of its hardware to qualify for for unlocking. Today Motorola added a few new models to its list of handsets supported by this program, and it's good news so long as you're not a smartphone users in the States. While Verizon subscribers are stuck with the Developer Editions of the Droid RAZR HD and RAZR M if they want to get into some ...

    This time on the Pocketnow Weekly: SO MANY NEWS. "It's been quite a week" is something of a tired phrase when it comes to mobile technology, and we've used it, verbatim, for the past month or so -- because it's true. From Windows Phone 8 to Android to iOS 6 to ... heck, even BlackBerry had some news this week. We did our best to get to most of it on the podcast, but there's only so much time in a morning, especially when some of the news is so finely detailed. Tune in to this week's Pocketnow Weekly podcast for in-depth discussion of HTC's new Windows Phone 8 handsets, new Android phones ...

    Yesterday we talked about Intel's 2GHz Medfield processor which is powering the RAZR i. It's got a few things going for it (x86, 2GHz, CISC, and made by Intel to name a few). Why is the quad-core Snapdragon S4 that much better than everything else out there, including the brand-new Intel Medfield? Let's take a look at the specs. Video All Snapdragon processors contain the guts necessary to decode high-definition video at 720p or 1080p (depending on the Snapdragon chipset). It's been stated that the S4 Pro is so powerful that it can play "a number" of 1080P HD videos at the same time ...

    It's only been a few days since we reviewed the Motorola Droid RAZR M, but it's already got a nearly identical twin on the way - identical in the looks department, anyway. Announced earlier today, the Motorola "RAZR i" offers almost no visual cues to set it apart from its slightly older sibling, apart from a hardware camera key. The real story is inside. The RAZR i is the world's first Motorola-built Android smartphone powered by an Intel CPU. We first caught a sniff of this back in February, when it was rumored to be Motorola's first Ice Cream Sandwich-sporting device. That bit didn't pan ...

    It's finally here: an Android-powered smartphone running on an Intel chip. That's big news, right? Sure it is, but the devil is in the details. The phone in question is the RAZR i -- the "i", if you couldn't guess, is for "Intel", and it's running one of Intel's Medfield-based Atom processors. What's so special about Intel? Intel is world's largest and highest valued semiconductor chip maker, based on revenue1, but they've been somewhat slow getting into the mobile market (and by that I mean smartphones and tablets). The primary reason for that is due to their architecture. When most ...

    If you think that the RAZR I which was unveiled this morning by Motorola and Intel is worth purchasing you can now do so if you live in the UK (or import from there if you're in the US or somewhere else). The official, SIM-free (unlocked) price is £285 (£342 inc.VAT) -- which translates to $463 -- and the first stock is due early next month. Just to recap: it packs a 2GHz single-core Intel Medfield processor, 1GB of RAM, 4.3-inch qHD AMOLED screen, 8GB of internal storage (5GB accessible), microSD expansion slot, eight-megapixel camera plus all the usual suspects. Sadly there's no Jelly ...

    We knew Intel was going to be part of today's Motorola announcement and we had a pretty good hunch that it will be making the processor which will power whatever phone the company will unveil today. We now have the official info: the Motorola RAZR I is powered by an Intel Atom (Medfield) processor and it's the world's first phone to run on a 2GHz SoC (single-core though, but with hyper-threading). Motorola is proud to call this the biggest launch in the UK since the RAZR. The newborn RAZR I packs an edge-to-edge 4.3-inch AMOLED screen ("with virtually no border") which will appeal to ...
