Engadget Benchmarks The RAZR i, It's Probably Not The Powerhouse You Were Expecting

Right after Motorola made the RAZR i official, the very first comment on our post was "Benchmarks ASAP!" because everyone wants to know how Intel's Medfield processor compares to the more common ARM-based chips that we're used to seeing. Engadget spent some time doing exactly that this morning, and the results are, well... less than impressive. Have a look:

The only area where the RAZR i outperforms its Snapdragon S4-touting cousin (the M) is in the SunSpider benchmark, which tests browser performance.

Samsung Claims Galaxy S IV Rumors Are Bogus, In Least Surprising Turn Of Events Ever

Yesterday, a great many tech sites were quick to jump on the bandwagon about rumors of a Galaxy S IV. It doesn't really matter what these rumors were - they were reported by The Korea Times, a publication that has regularly offered up Samsung leaks because of their geographical proximity to the company's supply chain. They also tend to get a little, shall we say, cheerleady about anything Samsung lately, so perhaps they jumped the gun on this one.

Acer just officially announced the smaller of two tablets we saw from the company back at Computex in June: the Iconia Tab A110. The device appears to be a head-to-head competitor with the Nexus 7, as it offers many of the same features, as well as a few missing from the N7:

  • 7 " 1024x600 display
  • NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor
  • microUSB, microSD, and microHDMI ports
  • 390g

Motorola Announces The RAZR i With A 2GHz Intel CPU And 4.3-Inch Display, Launching In Europe And Latin America Next Month

Motorola has just revealed its first smartphone powered by an Intel mobile processor, the RAZR i, at an event in London this morning. Although the exterior of the new device shares a lot of similarities with the previously released RAZR M, such as a 4.3-inch display and Kevlar coating on the back, it couldn't be more different inside, packing an Intel CPU clocked at 2GHz.

Motorola claims that the processor is "40% more efficient" than the competition, comparing the RAZR i to the iPhone 4S, so it will be interesting to see how much usage can be squeezed out of the phone's 2,000mAh battery.

Asus Transformer Pad TF300T Getting OTA Update To 10.4.2.13

A new update for Asus' middle-range Android tablet is rolling out at this very moment. Users on XDA are reporting getting the update notification, but it appears to be a little fickle with rooted devices. The abbreviated changelog claims this is a simple stability enhancement.

The team at Chameleon Launcher appear to be keeping up their breakneck-pace for updates, and today have hit a significant milestone in that ongoing process: their first release candidate. It's a pretty big deal for the once-upon-a-time Kickstarter project, and while I personally haven't found much use for it, there's no denying the Chameleon team has absolutely blown through the bugs and issues from the first beta released just a little over a month ago.

A History of Pre-Cupcake Android Codenames

You know the Android codenames, right? Starting with Android 1.5, they're alphabetical snacks - Cupcake, Donut, Éclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, and Jelly Bean. But what about before 1.5? What were those called? And why did they start with C? We've got real answers from real Googlers.

Wikipedia's Android Version History is a pretty awesome article, but, as of a few days ago, it was erroneously calling 1.0 and 1.1 "Astro" and "Bender." We had never heard of this, and there wasn't a good source attached to it, so we took to G+ to set the record straight.
