[GsmArena]Motorola officially announces RAZR i with 2GHz Intel CPU - Page 6

post #51 of 82
Is it so much to ask for an x86 Win 8 phone? Not arm RT rubbish...the real thing, with normal applications and a decent screen size.
If it could dual boot or switch to desktop view and be used with a mouse I'd jump into that. Heck, I'd buy the xpPhone 2 in a heartbeat.
Looking forward for the next generation of Atoms thumb.gif

RAZR i does not.... look at the picture. The buttons are overlayed on the display itself.

I hate to break it to you, but the buttons you see on the Galaxy Nexus are not physical capacitive buttons- they are on the screen just like this phone. That was one of the new things pushed out by Google for ICS and the Nexus, being the flagship device, is in line with what Google imagined for ICS.

If all you've seen is pictures, it can be hard to tell, but if you have actually used or even seen the phone in person its easy to see there are no buttons.

@TechRadar:

Embracing Android 4.0 (and now 4.1) wholeheartedly, there are no buttons on the front of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Zilch. Nada.

Three soft keys are provided within the OS at the bottom of the screen: back, home and multitasking. The beauty here is that when they're not needed, the OS disposes of them and gives you more screen space to enjoy your pleasures.

@Engadget:

As we already mentioned, the Nexus lacks hardware buttons, which have been replaced with three softkeys at the bottom of the screen -- back, home and recent apps.

Couldn't tell from the pics since they are in a black background area but this picture shows they re-orientate so they are onscreen: http://cdn.pocket-lint.com/images/4zMw/samsung-galaxy-nexus-ice-cream-sandwich-review-11.jpg?20111121-215707

However, they still up screen space permentantly or do they autohide? With this phone it looks to be an transparent overlay so that may mean it autohides.
Once again...

Man... that's fast. Nice clock speeds... did I read correctly that this is a single-core w/ HT?

Had two Atrix's and both eventually started ghost typing and freezing. Eventually became impossible to do anything.

That's single-core with SMT. It's impressive, but there's a couple of points to note (aside from DuckieHo's point that it is still outperformed overall by current Krait processors)

First, Krait will be receiving a couple of bumps in IPC over the next couple of iterations (the first is supposed to be the quad-cores releasing soon).
Second, the atom is clocked higher.
Third (and related to the second) is that power consumption scales quadratically with clockspeed. For any single architecture (as an example) if a processor at 1GHz uses 1W of power, then 1.5GHz will use 2.25W and 2GHz will use 4W. Intel bumping the clockspeed from 1.6GHz to 2GHz is going to hit battery life hard when doing anything that will take advantage of all that processing power. This is why Apple wanted a custom-modded core that ran at a lower clockspeed (and increased IPC). They might not win all the performance benchmarks, but they will have much better battery life at 1GHz than at 1.5GHz (helping overcome their half-node fabrication disadvantage).

Dont know if this is true but the US version might have dual core..

qHD? Not gonna cut it anymore. 300PPI+ phones are already well established on the high end. Nobody would want an "upgrade" to qHD.

x86 is a terrible uarch for low power ultra mobile situations. It is CISC and contains tons of legacy crap. Intel is only able to achieve the results they do from their world class fabrication process.

Smartphones need RISC. If Intel were to fab the latest ARM-based CPU on their high-tech process, it would stomp Medfield.
