Motorola to reveal its first Intel-based smartphone Sept. 18th

One of the world's largest smartphone makers will finally reveal its first device with an Intel processor inside the case as Motorola has sent out press invites for the media to attend an event in London on Tuesday, September 18th; The invite has an Intel logo alongside the Motorola logo.

News.com got one of the invites but has no other details about the event. Motorola first announced their partnership with Intel back at CES in January but both companies have not revealed any details since then. Intel is still well behind ARM-based processor companies like Qualcomm, NVIDIA and Texas Instruments in the growing smartphone market, will likely make some inroads in this marketplace this year.

In February, Internet leaks claimed to have revealed one of the first details of the Motorola-Intel smartphone collaboration (seen above). The rumors stated it would have Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) out of the box. At the time, the rumors said that the device would be shown at February's World Mobile Congress trade show in Spain but that didn't actually happen.

While this Motorola smartphone is using Android (Motorola is now owned by Android maker Google), Intel has expressed interest in the past about having its processors running inside Windows Phone products as well.
