Motorola's first Intel-powered smartphone shown off

Plenty of rumours about smartphones hitting the upcoming Mobile World Congress, but not much from Motorola. Until now that is.

This is expected to be one of the Motorola launches at the trade show. Except we haven't got a name for it. Still, we've got a great image, showing a phone that's typically Motorola in looks (think something like the RAZR or the more recent Motoluxe), but a little different 'under the bonnet'.

That's because this is the first smartphone from Motorola to use the Medfield platform from Intel, as opposed to the Texas Instruments OMAP processors, which are usually found in Motorola phones. It's also arriving with the Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) variation of Android too. Those two factors make this a highly-anticipated launch.

Not much else is known, although the phone is said to have a camera that's a big selling point, with features such as 'instant-on' capabilities and 15fps burst capture. The kind of thing you would expect from a standalone compact camera. The only other feature so far mentioned is a a new version of the MOTOBLUR user interface working alongside the ICS OS.

More to come on this one, that's for sure. If not in the next two weeks, at the Barcelona trade show at the end of February.
