Motorola's first Intel-powered smartphone reportedly shown in leaked render, Android 4.0 in towAlex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
See that handset up there? That, according to the folks at Pocketnow, is the result of the agreement between Intel and Motorola that we learned about last month. The handset is said to be Motorola's first Intel Medfield-powered Android smartphone and is purportedly running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich beneath a custom Motorola user interface. As you can tell by the bottom of this device's display, the on-screen Android navigation keys have been customized along with the rest of the OS. Not much else is known about this mystery phone, but it's said that the camera will be a major focus of the device thanks to features like instant-on and a 15 frames per second burst capture.
So what do you all make of this Motorola handset? Its body looks fairly similar to that of other recent Moto-made smartphones like the DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX, and there also appears to be a physical camera key on its side, which would not only be a welcome addition but would also make sense if one of the big selling points for this phone is its camera. The good news is that we may not have long to wait to get our first peek at this alleged Motorola-Intel mashup, as the folks at Pocketnow believe that it may debut as soon as Mobile World Congress later this month. We'll be live on the ground in Barcelona to cover all of MWC as it happens, so stay tuned!
