MOTOROLA + INTEL = RAZR i
PROOF OF TECH MEDIA BIAS TOWARDS THE iPHONE PART 2
More subliminal messages from…
… TECHNOLOGY SHOW!
Another dodgy and cheap headline that says the iPhone 5 is the handset to beat… Hahahahaha!
Motorola RAZR i hands on preview: Can Intel Inside kill the iPhone 5?
You know that answer to that one: Dead and buried! I’m kidding! But Apple had its chance and for the sake of petty litigation they missed out on a great opportunity! I spoke to an iPhone user today who has 4 – not the 4S and has no plans to upgrade to 5 (6)! Ok, it’s one person… I am still not convinced that it has sold out! The Usual Suspects are saying so, but I truly doubt it! Never mind… I guess it’s one way to try and salvage the mess! Still, I am looking forward to seeing the devotees camping outside the shop!
I bet that the Technology Show hasn’t taken a look at the iPhone 5! I guess they don’t need to… Wink, wink… Ha ha!
Here’s another tacky headline for ya: RAZR i has the EDGE! Ha ha! Now seriously… Yes, the RAZR i has turned out to be the RAZR M with the Intel chip replacing the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 quad-core 1.5 GHz one! So, essentially no new Sci-Fiesque completely borderless magical slab of glass for a phone!
The specs look quite decent!
Super AMOLED Advanced 4.3-inch display extends from edge-to-edge with an extreme minimal bezel – giving you more screen for less phone. The resolution is 540 x 960 pixels… qHD! Not bad for a phone that fits in the palm of your hand! It’s compact! The pixel depth is 256 ppi and by all accounts it looks crisp!
RAZR i is the first smartphone that can achieve speeds of 2.0 GHz thanks to a fast Intel® Atom™ processor. Jump from a game to a text and over to a playlist, then off to browse the Web – all without stopping and on a long-lasting battery that is 40 percent more powerful than the iPhone 5 and quite a few of the competition by the looks of it! 20hrs! But I would like to put that to the test!
The camera is pretty decent too, 8MP and it has its own button on the body of the phone! It’s what I would love to see on a Sammy phone – a button on the handset for the camera!
Again, no Jelly Bean, Android 4.1 until later in the year! That’s not too bad! But I have come to expect more from a Google owned company! Hmmm… What’s going on there? At least Jelly Bean is coming in the same year!
That’s just the basic specs… There’s no mention of whether the RAZR i will be 4G LTE compatible… If 4G LTE compatible the RAZR i could very well be a match for the iPhone 5; it’s hard to tell without testing them! At least Motorola got the screen size and resolution right! It looks fast, certainly it promises to be! I crossing my fingers for 4G LTE because the RAZR i could be one of the handsets to go for this year in the UK when 4G arrives in December (I think)!
What do you think? Do you think the RAZR i cuts the iPhone 5 down to size?
Bring on the RAZR i HD Maxx!
