We’ve just received invitations to attend a London event where Motorola and Intel will combine to let them take us “to the edge.” They’ve also uploaded a teaser video to YouTube with the title “Let us take you to the edge.” It blurts messages of edge-to-edge speed and power with imagery of ferocious ocean waves and the startling takeoff of a race car.
This is no doubt teasing Intel’s Medfield chipset, and with Motorola they’re likely to unveil a new smartphone with the chipset inside. Well… the smartphone may not be “new” to most of us, but it’ll be new to the folks over in Europe.
We’re expecting Motorola and Intel to announce a variant of the Motorola RAZR M or one of the base 2012 RAZR devices with Intel’s Medfield technology instead of the usual Snapdragon S4 processor.
We imagine they could only do this for Europe due possible LTE compatibility issues. New mobile chipset vendors tend to be late to the LTE game so it wouldn’t surprise us if that is the case.
Motorola’s banking a partnership with perhaps the biggest name in embedded technology, whether it be mobile or otherwise, and we couldn’t be more excited to see what’s to come of it. Watch the short 17 second teaser above, and be sure to circle back on September 18th when the two combine in London to unveil it all.
