Motorola’s first Intel-powered handset
Tuesday September 18th, 2012
Rory Cellan-Jones reports back for the BBC about Motorola’s new phone. A few things that caught my roving eye…
Motorola said the change of chip meant improved camera performance. However, it has also meant Google’s Chrome browser is not installed on the device.
“You can be ready to take a picture in less than one second, which is about twice as fast as other products on the market,” Eric Reid, general manager of Intel mobile and communications group, told the BBC. “A lot of times you want to take multiple pictures – and you can take up to 10 pictures in a second, which is faster than many DSLRs (digital single lens reflex) cameras on the market today.”
Improving the camera while not having Google’s Chrome browser on the device?
“Not all cores are created equal,” said Mr Reid.
“Intel is trying to enter the mobile market in a modest way… We expect it will launch a more expensive multi-core processor in 2013, although we don’t know the partner.”
Modest way? Expensive multi-core? Something tells me that Intel are not sure what they are doing in this market.
