Motorola's first Android 4.0 Intel smartphone leaked?

Motorola has promised that some of its previously released Android 2.3 smartphones, including the Droid RAZR, would be getting an upgrade to Android 4.0. Motorola is also working on smartphones that will have Google's new mobile operating system, otherwise known as Ice Cream Sandwich, out of the box. Today new images leaked out on the Internet that seems to show what the first Motorola Android 4.0 would look like.

The images, as seen on Pocketnow.com, show what looks like a fairly standard smartphone case for the device. However, the article adds that the unnamed Motorola Android 4.0 product will have Intel's mobile phone processor inside. If true, this would be one of the very first such smartphones that will run on Intel's hardware, which is a version of its Atom PC processor.

Other details on this upcoming device are sketchy at the moment but the report does say that the smartphone's camera is supposed to be better than normal with features such as instant-on and 15 frame-per-second burst capture capabilities. It's likely that Motorola will fully reveal this new smartphone entry at the World Mobile Congress trade show. That event will be held in Barcelona, Spain starting on February 27.

It has begun, 15 frame per second capture... show me that on ARM. Go x86.

But will vast majority of mobile (arm) apps work? I doubt it

A windows/proper linux mod should do the job for you, of course, you also can make calls , anyway, ARM lacks the performance that x86 really does have.

all apps will work since it's dalvik that run the code
the only exception are app that use NDK they will have to recompile their module for x86 that can be added to the same apps
at the same time that will let the app run under GTV

I wonder how long the battery would last...

If this is similar to the phone Intel demoed at CES it will have around 16 hour talk time and 5 day standby time (game changer). Intel processors are way more energy efficient than the current phone processors.

Thought so called Intel is known for expensive and powerful processors. Guess not.

Yeah... I'm pro AMD too, hopefully they will also enter in this realm, but for the moment... I finally I'm gonna be able to have a proper x86 processor in my cellphone.

Imagine a Core i7 Extreme Hexa processor for a phone. It will explode and can't even last for 1 second on power. Boom, intel sucks.

As would an AMD Bulldozer processor, doesn't mean either AMD or Intel suck does it... considering the processors are not designed for mobile devices, and would never be put in a phone.

Muppet. Yeah, these devices are all running processors meant for PCs /s

I can imagine that in quite a while... by then a standard desktop should be able to emulate PS3, and also by then we will have Hexacores AMD APUs.

Lol @ all the poor unemployed AMD fangirls. Hey ladies you get what you pay for. I for one am excited to see what this phone can do vs the Kal-El that will be out later this year.

Intel, is and will always be superior to anything AMD produces. Intel accomplishes more on accident than AMD does on purpose. Just remember that while your shelling out a couple hundred bucks for a bargain piece of **** from AMD/ATI

I agree, I will never buy AMD..

The reality of the situations is, there are really only 2 processor manufacturers when it comes to desktop PC's. There can be only 1 better one at a time. One will always top the other. They go back and forth every time a new generation of processors is designed. Has AMD been crappy lately? Yes. Does this make them indefinitely inferior? No.

Or do people forget Intel has had their own ****ty products? They are not always superior as VoX claims above.

I buy the best the money I have available at that particular time can buy me. Sometimes that's AMD, other times it's Intel.

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but a lame (and sexist) comment by a person off the reservation will never hurt me.

I think more then raw phone (or if somone want: render of this phone) ugly is what we can see on the screen - thats REALLY ugly. REALLY. I think it's because colors are so fcking terrible.
