Motorola launches Razr i with a 2.0Ghz Intel Atom processor, ships next month


The first of its smartphones to sport an Intel processor —a 2.0GHz Atom Z2460, to be exact— was officially launched by Motorola at an event in London yesterday. The Android 4.0 “Razr i” (upgradeable to 4.1 in the future), includes a 4.4-inch, 960-by-540-pixel resolution AMOLED display, 8-megapixel camera, NFC, and a 2,000mAh battery.

We did not get specifics on pricing from Motorola, but we know the Razr i will land in at least the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Mexico, Argentina, and Brazil sometime in October. One retailer claimed to have pricing for the device following yesterday’s event (via Phandroid). Retailer Clove is accepting preorders for the device with a shipment date of Oct. 1 and price tag of £342.00 including VAT (around $550). We had great first impressions with the similar Razr M in our recent review, so we look forward to getting our hands on its Intel-powered brother.

Motorola already released two videos online for the Razr i following its media event. The first, above, is the official U.K. commercial for the device, and the second, below, focuses on Intel and the Razr i’s edge-to-edge display:
