Motorola RAZR i unveiled: first phone with 2GHz processor, Intel inside
posted by Victor H. / Sep 18, 2012, 4:17 AM
The AMOLED screen is sized at the healthy 4.3 inches with qHD (540x960-pixel) resolution, but it’s edge-to-edge, so size-wise it’s more similar to more compact devices like the iPhone, while still having a larger screen. Response time is ultra-fast as well.
The RAZR i comes with the rock solid Kevlar back of previous Motorolas and an aluminum encircling. Additionally, the device is strengthened with Splash Guard, a technology that protects the inside of the phone from water damage (it's not waterproof, though).
The device features an extremely snappy 8-megapixel camera with quick start-up. The shooter can take 10 pictures a second and takes only a second to start up. There are three versions of the phone depending on the internal storage - an 8GB, 16GB and 32GB one, and memory is expandable via microSD cards on each one of them.
The Motorola RAZR i also comes with the promise of a full-day battery life with a 2,000mAh juicer. NFC is also on board.
In terms of software, you get Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with the promise that it'd soon get bumped up to 4.1 Jelly Bean. On top of that, you have the light Motorola skin that we've come to like recently. You have the circle widget, and some other nice tweaks to the stock Android user interface.
The Motorola RAZR i release date is set for October for various markets like the UK, Germany, France, Brazil, Argentina and Mexico, but so far we've heard nothing of a U.S. launch. Since the RAZR i looks very similar to the earlier unveiled Verizon Motorola Droid RAZR M (save for the processor), our guess is that this device will be initially available only outside the States.

quick question, which is better? a quad-core/dual core 1.5 GHz or a 2GHz single core? Is having more cores better for multitasking?

How I understand it, typically yes. Each core can perform a task. How I understand it is like this. Assuming you are doing an action that one core can't handle. Texting does not require as much resources as playing a game.

Nope, it's single-core.

Yay for Moto, if the single-core Intels are as powerful as current ARM dual-cores, then the dual-core Intels should be as powerful as quad-cores; the question is, when will we get dual-cores from Intel? And what about quad-cores?

I really hope that single core would beat the crap out of tge duals and quads! Just so people can see for their eyes that amount of cores isn't that important! Intel FTW!

Already proven by dual kraits against quads. This intel chip sure can blast 1st gen duals (tegra2) but not new ones (kraits).
