Intel Powered Motorola RAZR M Launching In The UK on Sept 18th

If today’s unveiling of the Motorola RAZR M looked familiar to you, that’s because you’ve probably seen it before.

      You can’t make fun of the powervr gpu that will be in this. It’s the one thing iPhone still has over Android.


        Current Android GPU’s are in the same performance tier as the PowerVR, no?

        I’d bet 11/10 times that a Motorola DROID device goes to Verizon only. :p


    I like everything about this phone except the double chin.

      I like that it is designed to be water resistant. That should be the new standard.

    My big question is will many android apps even work with the intel instead of ARM? I ask because not all apps use java, many use c/c++

      None of the native coded (Most games), big flop

    September 18, UK, Intel… is this the “edge” we’re going to be taken to? I guess it’s still impressive given Moto’s bezel history.
