Will Motorola And Intel Finally Unveil Their First Smartphone Collaboration This Month?

Intel started out 2012 by giving the impression that it was about to get very involved in the smartphone and tablet scene, thanks to its Atom-based Medfield SoCs. We heard the company announce a multi-year partnership with Motorola that would presumably lead to using these chips in future Motorola hardware, and we even saw a leak of what one of those devices might be, but we’ve yet to see them come to market; if you’ve wanted Intel-based Androids in the meantime, you’ve been stuck with lesser-known names like Xolo. Now, it may nearly be time for this Motorola deal to finally get off the ground, upon the news that Motorola and Intel are planning a joint press event for September 18.

The London event claims on its invitation that the companies involved will “take you to the edge”, but is largely free of clues that could help us narrow-down the subject of whatever announcement they plan to make. Could the hardware we peeked at back in February still be on the table, or might there be an all new design that’s been cooked-up in the interim?
