I am not interested in every smartphone that is announced. It usually takes something outstanding to hold my attention. The Motorola RAZR i is certainly outstanding. It is the first smartphone that is powered by a a single-core 2GHz Intel Atom processor. That is PC-grade computing power on a mobile!
The Intel Atom CPU supports hyper-threading, so don’t look down on it because it is single-core. This is real bad-ass computing power. It is reported that the RAZR i’s 2GHz Intel Atom chip is so fast that the 8 megapixel camera starts under 1 second and can take 10 pictures in less than one second. Easy.Breathe. In. Out. That’s right.
The RAZR i sports Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, a 4.3-inch AMOLED screen, with a water resistant coating, plus some Kevlar casing. Sounds like a device for James Bond or Jason Bourne. Yeah.
Just last week, I was complaining of mobile being a little boring. Just this morning, I was hyperventilating over the LG Optimus G, and now this. I’ve had enough exciting news today already.
