Motorola to launch Intel-powered Edge
29 Aug 2012
Enigmatic invite appears for launch event on 18 September
Motorola may not be exhibiting at Berlin's IFA tech conference this week, but it's not getting left out of the expected flurry of announcements – the Motorola Edge has just been announced, and it's an Intel-powered smartphone... or tablet.
We're not sure which, but we've just received a save-the-date invite for an event in London on 18 September, headed up by Motorola Mobility and Intel logos.
We do know that it'll be an Android-powered device though, as Google now owns Moto's mobile division – in fact, if it's a phone, it's even likely to be the first phone launched with the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS, as the Motorola Xoom, the first ever Android tablet, has already been confirmed to be in line for the update.
Computer chip maker Intel recently created its first smartphone processor for the Orange San Diego, also co-branded with the Intel Inside logo that's decorating the Motorola Edge invitation in our inbox.
We'll have more updates the second we puzzle out more, including whether we can expect Intel on the inside of a new superphone or a new super-tablet.
