Motorola RAZR i, the first Motorola handset to be powered by Intel.

Fresh from its IFA 2012 announcements, Motorola Mobility has announced another addition to its RAZR line-up, this time the first-ever Intel-powered Motorola smartphone – the Motorola RAZR i. The ‘i’ moniker to represent Intel, I suppose.

The mid-range edge-to-edge Motorola RAZR i, comes with a single-core 2Ghz Atom Z2480 “Medfield” chip. Bundled with generous 2GB RAM and  8GB, 16GB and GB storage options, the RAZR i is similar in size, screen, resolution, battery and built-type to the recently announced RAZR M.

The 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advance display is crisp and clear with 540×960 resolution.  Not the sharpest, obviously, but the lack of bezel with its edge-to-edge screen makes it bigger than it looks.

The RAZR i comes with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. Motorola will be upgrading the RAZR i to Jelly Bean soon.

With SMARTACTIONS, Motorola’s macro and scripting app makes automation a snitch. The innteractive Circles Widget allows quick access to notifications, weather, time and the other stuff you need to use.

As PC shipments decline, the rise of mobile devices like smartphones and tablets has Intel scrambling for a piece of the lucrative pie. With its current stable of low-power chips like the Intel Atom family, Intel is keen to make inroads into the mobile arena.

Intel’s aggressive push into the mobile market may see other companies, aside from Motorola to consider Intel as one of their stalwarts like Qualcomm.

The phone is a result of the Intel-Motorola partnership announced at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2012 in January. Intel sees the alliance as a significant stepping stone for the chipmaker, since Motorola is now a unit of Google.

The Motorola RAZR i will be available in UK around October.
