Google This has always bothered me. Google buys a huge hardware company called Motorola, and people expect new Google phones to appear within a few weeks or months. Of course, anybody with more than two brain cells to rub together realises buying and integrating such a huge company isn't something you just do in a few weeks or months. Luckily, The Verge reports Google has just stated the obvious.

Razr I(ntel)

Speaking of Moto, i've just tried the all new Razr I, the one with Intel Inside; like others, i'm impressed. Performance is good and battery life excellent (i mean better than competitors). What? Excellent battery life with an X86 Intel processor? In any case, it's far better than my aging Nokia N8 ! And at roughly 380€ (here in France) it has a high value all things considered. If i were ARM and all minions, i should be worried, very worried.

If only they'd spent a little more [time|money] on the GPU, they'd have a killer product. The PowerVR SGX540 is ancient and slow, and really drags the entire product down. Intel has a good CPU (way better than a Cortex-A8, better than a single-core Cortex-A9, equivalent to/better than some dual-core Cortex-A9s), good memory controller, good peripherals ... but it's all dragged down by the GPU.
