Motorola Razr i, the recently released smartphone from the American company was available for pre-order in the UK for a price of £18.50 payable per month. The offer is provided by O2, UK’s online retailer and network provider. Motorola Razr i is the first phone to be powered by a 2GHz Intel Atom processor.
The price of Razr i brings the total cost of ownership to £372, which is only 10 per cent more than the SIM-free price of the smartphone. The contract includes 100 minutes, unlimited texts, 100MB data and priority moments. T-Mobile on the other hand offers 300 minutes, unlimited texts and 250MB data for £2.50 extra per month, in addition to the £20 cashback.
Speaking at the launch of Razr i, Andrew Morley, Vice President of International Marketing Motorola said, “This is our biggest launch since the Razr and is the first result in the collaboration with Intel. We are literally pushing design to the edge.” The 2GHz processor is single core chip, but Intel’s 32nm manufacturing process and Hyperthreading technology has lead the company to claim that it will outperform dual-core equivalents in web browsing and gaming.
Motorola Razr i has a 4.3-inch, super AMOLED display, weighs 126 grams and is 8.3mm thick. The smartphone runs on Android 4.0 and will be upgradeable to Android 4.1, Jelly Bean. The battery of the new device is 2000mAh cell and the body of the phone uses Kevlar, aluminium and Gorilla Glass in its creation.
Clove and Expansys are already taking pre-orders for Motorola’s spike up offering for the UK users.
