The Galaxy Nexus (yes, the very same phone which Apple is trying to stop from being sold) is the first smartphone which runs on Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system – which is expected, since it carries Google’s branding along with it. Well, Motorola does not want to be left out of the Ice Cream Sandwich game either, and here we are with a render of the manufacturer’s first smartphone that will run on Ice Cream Sandwich. It seems that this unit will be powered by Intel’s Medfield Platform, ditching Texas Instruments’ OMAP processor instead which is normally the mainstay of Motorola smartphones.
No idea on what Motorola’s Intel-powered Android 4.0 smartphone will be called, but industry watchers will most probably be looking out for it at Mobile World Congress that is happening in Barcelona at the end of this month. We also expect it to carry the latest version of the MotoBlur user interface. We do hope to have a look at it when we hit the showfloor.
