The first 500 who order the Motorola RAZR i from Phones 4u will get a free Bluetooth headphone
The Motorola RAZR i is now available in the U.K. from retailer Phones 4u from their retail stores and website. In the U.S., the phone is known as the Motorola DROID RAZR M with an edge-to-edge display. There actually is a pretty big difference between the two models under the hood. The Motorola RAZR i is powered by a 2GHz Intel processor instead of the dual-core Qualcomm processor on the "M". Other specs include the 4.3 inch qHD Super AMOLED screen with a pixel density of 256ppi. 1GB of RAM is on board and 8GB of native storage can be pumped up using the microSD slot. A rear-facing 8MP camera captures video in 1080p at 30fps. Multishot mode lets you take 10 pictures in a second, and the front-facing VGA shooter lets you take self portraits and enables video chat. A 2000 mAh battery keeps the power going and Android 4.0.4 is pre-installed.
The display is protected by Gorilla Glass and the phone's innards are protected from water damage with a splash-guard coating. The device also comes with support for NFC which means contacts, linnks, maps and other files can be sent wirelessly to another NFC equipped phone using Android Beam.
The Motorola RAZR i is free with a £21.50 a month plan and the first 500 who order the phone from Phones 4u will receive a free MOTOROKR S305 Bluetooth headphone from Phones 4u.

All what I want to know is when we will get a Phone Review of this strange fruit.
I Don't even know if this will be available im my country. But I really Want to know how this "Intel Inside" will behave in a Googorola device. Smoothness and Battery autonomy are my first concerns...
update: had chance to play with phone. very nice and light, edge to edge screen is the dream come true, but as other said chip us not the best and already in menu it was lagging a bit. so I won't be getting it but can't wait for the next edge to edge phone.
The Medfield chipset a serious downgrade over the Qualcomm S4, expecially concerning the GPU. It´s a pity cause I really like the Motorola RAZR M, but the RARZ I they can keep to themselves. Motto should not treat the european customers as if they were stupid if they want to gain market share.
