During the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year, Intel announced that it was partnering with Motorola Mobility to launch the first Intel-powered smartphones. Now, a leaked image from Pocketnow suggests that Motorola Mobility not only has an Intel-powered smartphone in the works, but also one powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The device will no doubt be important for both companies. Motorola Mobility has yet to launch an Android Ice Cream Sandwich device and Intel desperately wants to gain share in a mobile market dominated by Qualcomm, NVIDIA, Samsung, Texas Instruments, ARM and others.
So far, we’re digging the thin design and the metal accents even though the phone looks a bit similar to the Motorola DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX, save for the touch-sensitive buttons at the bottom of the display. Unfortunately, the device still doesn’t have a name and it’s unclear what kind of specs it will offer. It is possible we will hear more during Mobile World Congress later this month but we have a feeling that might be too soon for an announcement.
