UK to Get Intel-powered Motorola Droid M
Intel inside, not Qualcomm.
This has been a big week in the mobile industry. Amazon updated its entire Kindle line, and the day before, Nokia announced two new Lumia phones. On the same day, at an event in New York, Motorola unveiled the Droid Razr M. Packing a a 4.3-inch qHD 960x540 Super AMOLED display, a 1.5GHz, dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage and a microSD card. However, it seems when the phone launches in the UK, it won't have a dual-core Qualcomm at all. Instead, it's going to have an Intel chip.
Pocket-Lint reports that when asked, a spokesperson said that while the Droid M would be coming to the UK, it wouldn't be exactly the same phone. "The form factor will stay the same," Pocket-Lint was told, with a spokesperson saying the phone would switch out the Qualcomm for an Intel processor. It also won't be called the Droid Razr M.
Motorola didn't say why the phone will have a different CPU, but Motorola UK is launching a new Intel-powered device on September 18, which is likely the UK-version of the Droid M. Stay tuned!
