Here is the introduction of the 2GHz Intel powered Motorola RAZR i

0. phoneArena 22 Sep 2012, 11:41 posted on

Take a Motorola DROID RAZR M with its Edge-to-Edge display, yank out the Qualcomm MSM8960 processor, replace it with a single-core 2GHz Intel processor, and you basically have the Motorola RAZR i; Motorola has released the entire video of the introduction of the phone for your viewing pleasure...

Maybe CPU is not bad, but other specifications are less than average...

Main reasons why I won't choose this phone:

1) Resolution is only 540 x 960 pixels.
2) OLED based display.
3) Front-facing camera is only 0.3 megapixels (VGA).
4) Bluetooth 2.1.

It's supposed to be a mid-range. This is average. Intel and Moto weren't looking to push the boundaries on anything, they were just looking to take a step into something new.

You see, the problem is that when I see such specifications like a:

2 GHz CPU
8 MP camera
2000 mAh battery

it doesn't look like it is a mid-range device.

But when I see such specifications like a:

0.3 megapixels (VGA) front-facing camera
Bluetooth 2.1

it starts look even poorer than a mid-range device and that's why it is so strange. Also how many times did you saw such presentations just for mid-range device.

I see your point, but my statement still stands. Also, the camera and battery are the same on the Razr M, which is what the Razr-i is except with a dual core S4.

The reason they made such a big presentation, is because they are doing what no one has done before. This is one of Intel's first steps into the mobile industry, and they want to make a big deal out of it. The fact that it is single-core, goes up against the dual S4, and can be clocked up to 2 GHz (while the S4 can only be up to 1.7) is just amazing.

Also, considering that this is Intel's first generation chip makes it just that much more impressive. If their 1st gen can go up against a 4th gen chip, they seem very promising. That's why they made a big presentation.

"I see your point, but my statement still stands."

My comment #2 also still stands because I just told why I won't choose this phone. :)

"The reason they made such a big presentation, is because they are doing what no one has done before. This is one of Intel's first steps into the mobile industry, and they want to make a big deal out of it."

Agree, it is a big deal and I like that Intel is coming into the mobile industry. Yes, it is one of the first Intel's steps in to mobile industry but not the first step, there already was Lava XOLO X900.

Also on the other hand it is still strange how Motorola and Intel had chosen mid-range device for such CPU presentation.

Yes, you are always entitled to your opinion on which device you want to go with, I am certainly in no place to argue with you on that considering I wouldn't get it myself.

That's why I specified it was "one" of the first, not "the" first. Really, it's Intel's first step into the mobile industry with a popular brand.

It does make sense, because this chip only falls slightly short of the S4, which is classified as a high-ish/mid-range chip. You wouldn't release a high-end device with a mid-range chip, would you?

In some cases for multitasking it does.

Actually Motorola and Nokia holds most important patents, not like Apple with stupid rounded corners patent (if even we can call it "patent") !

If those aren't patent how the hell are they used to make law suites on em.. So u telling me that worlds law written by you ???? Or are the man or whole world ?don't think too much bout you. Your just a buyer here I guess.. We all are customers of products.. So u just but what you like and what you can buy.. Cz I know main reason is y people trying to move to android it's cheaper than iPhone also the market getting down very fastly.. If I'm talking bout sgs2 now it's only 474 $. But iPhone 4 666 $ . And 4s 851 $ (64gb) . Sgs3 - 659$ .. So that's what I'm talking .. So people can buy em easily after releasing of 2-3 months.. So ... I'm not trying to tell that apple is the best -( probably it is ) LoL.. But that the real..

Motorola ain't no patent troll like Apple. The Microsoft vs Motorola lawsuit is just an embarassing deal that didn't do sweat.
Microsoft did infringe on Motorola H.264 patent, but Moto wants 4Billion per year from MS
Whereas Moto did infringe on MS Android patent, but moto doesn't agree and counter sue

Intel should take their business to Samsung, HTC or Nokia as Motorola is not doing the CPU justice.

0.3 megapixels (VGA) front-facing camera
256 ppi
Blue Tooth 2.1

SMH!!
