At CES in January, Intel and Motorola announced a multi-year partnership that would allow the almost fully-acquired smartphone maker to produce phones using their Medfield processors. The first set of phones was expected to ship some time towards the end of 2012. You may be looking at one of the first devices in the picture above.
From what we can tell, it’s definitely running Ice Cream Sandwich and also some for of Moto’s Blur. The icon set is definitely not stock Android, but the notification bar and app drawer button are. It is also buttonless on the front side, meaning we’ll have on-screen soft keys, something that only the Galaxy Nexus can lay claim to at this point. It then has physical volume, power and camera buttons on the right side. And speaking of the camera, Intel’s Medfield chipsets can take up to 15 pictures in a single second – this device is said to include that feature.
We spent some time with a Medfield phone at CES, you can view those pictures and details here. This particular Motorola phone could make its debut at MWC at the end of the month.
Thoughts on the first Intel-powered Motorola device? Like the style? Interested in Intel chips?
