Motorola unveils its first Intel smartphone, but USA isn't invited to the party

MrSeb writes "At a joint press conference in London, Motorola and Intel have unveiled the Razr I smartphone. The Razr I has a edge-to-edge 960×540 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display, a layer of Kevlar on the back, and — most importantly — the brains of the operation is an Intel Medfield SoC clocked at 2GHz. Rounding out the hardware specs, there’s an 8-megapixel rear shooter, a front-facing VGA camera, NFC, a 2000 mAh battery, and the entire phone (including the internal components) is protected by a “splash-guard” water repellent coating. On the software side of things, rather excitingly, it looks like the Razr I runs an almost-vanilla version of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. One of the weirder aspects of today’s product announcement is that the Razr I won’t be made available in North America; it’ll only ever see the light of day in Europe and some parts of Latin America (Mexico, Brazil) sometime in October. In fact, to date, four Medfield-powered Android smartphones have been released — the Xolo X900, Lenovo K800, Orange San Diego, and now the Razr I — but not a single one of them is available in the US. Why? The most likely reason is that Intel isn’t quite ready to face off against the latest and greatest SoCs in the most hotly contested smartphone battleground."
