Motorola’s first Android with Intel inside set for MWC

Motorola’s first Android with Intel inside set for MWC

Images of a new Motorola handset has landed online just days before Mobile World Congress, giving us our initial look at the company’s first smartphone powered by an Intel processor. Details are rather light at this point, but word is that the camera will be one of the key features in the device and should feature 15fps burst capture and instant-on.

Looking at the image we can see this is an obvious Android 4.0 device as there are no hard buttons in sight. What’s more, the user interface has been changed a bit, perhaps with a new Motoblur influenced by Ice Cream Sandwich. It appears that there is a physical camera button along the side but that’s not anything revolutionary. In terms of overall design, the phone has shed the angular corners of most 2011 models and even looks a bit T-Mobile G2-like below the display.

As some of you may know, Motorola typically taps Texas Instruments for the processors in their Android smartphones. It will be interesting to see what level of performance an Intel-powered (Medfield) device provides and whether or not the benchmarks can stand shoulder to shoulder with other top Androids.

There’s plenty of time between now and Mobile World Congress for more leaks to spring up so don’t be surprised if we learn more in the coming days.
