Just hours after the Motorola Razr i was launched, the first pricing for the Intel-based smartphone landed in our inbox; and it doesn’t look good (the phone itself is expected to be launched on 1 October 2012.

The Motorola Razr i, which was described as “pushing design to the edge”, will cost at least £335, which is almost twice the price of the Orange San Diego (£169.99 with an extra £15 top-up) unveiled earlier this year.

It runs a 2GHz Intel Atom processor built using a 32nm architecture and based on the Medfield architecture whereas the four other Intel-based smartphones launched previously use a processor clocked at 1.6GHz.

The processor chip is reportedly the Z2480 - an unexpected model considering it has arrived before the dual-core Z2580, which is said to be sampling in the second half of the year.

The GPU used is a PowerVR part, one which according to Erik Reid, GM Intel Mobile and Comms Group, has been overclocked - compared to other Intel-based smartphones - to improve performance.

A few more details have been confirmed; An Android Jelly bean update will be available very shortly, the microSD card slot goes up to 32GB, the front-facing camera is a 0.3-megapixel model, the phone weighs a mere 120g and it's only 8.3mm at its thinnest point. However, only 5GB of the 8GB storage is accessible by the user.
