Intel-powered Razr i Now Shipping to Customers in the UK

By - Source: ZDNet | B 11 comments

The Intel-powered Droid Razr i is finally available in the UK.

Just before the iPhone 5 announcement, Motorola announced the new Droid Razr M. However, the device that caught our attention wasn't the one that had just been announced, instead, we were dying to hear more about a version of the phone that wasn't yet official. When asked about availability for the United Kingdom, a Motorola spokesperson said that the Droid Razr M would be coming to the UK but with an Intel processor under the hood. 

Sure enough, a couple of weeks later, Motorola and Intel got together to unveil the Droid Razr i, which had all the fixings of the Droid Razr M, but with an Intel processor in place of the Qualcomm chip present in the Razr M. Packing a a 4.3-inch AMOLED display, an 8-megapixel camera with HDR and Android 4.0, the 1.5GHz Qualcomm processor was replaced with an Atom chip boasting a max clock speed of 2GHz. 

At the time, UK retailer Clove told us they expected the first shipment in the first week of October, and it looks like the Razr M is right on time. The device went on sale in the UK this week and is debuting on Amazon today at £350 SIM-free.

    Don't get this wrong, I like the Brits, Brit comedies (No Basil, I am not yet being served) and the BBC.
    But why do we get all these 'articles' about what has just started shipping in the UK ?
    Or does THG not have a UK site and we share the English version ?

    Yes, I agree. I read the German edition of THG for the same reason.
    But than we should also hear what's shipping in Spain, Italy, Australia or FRANCE; the home of THG!
    It just so seems that the UK gets an unusually larger proportion.

    Any chance for a head-to-head review between the RAZR M and RAZR i?

    I've read that the Medfield CPUs have a translation layer between ARMv7 and x86. It'd probably be a mix of that and an x86 Android system.

    This new phone might be powerful enough to playback 10 bit video!
