Motorola RAZR i goes on pre-order in UK, costs 345

18 September, 2012

The Intel Atom-powered Motorola RAZR i was announced just a few hours ago, but its already gone on pre-order in the UK one of the very few countries to get the phone in early October. The rest of the lucky regions are France, Germany, Brazil, Argentina and Mexico.

The SIM free version (without any contract) goes around 345 (incl. VAT) in the UK. Clove and Expansys are already taking pre-orders, various other retailers should also join any moment now.

So, the new Motorola RAZR i XT890 is almost ready to take its chances in the UK market. The price seems reasonable too and even though the initial benchmark scores failed to impress us, the user experience is pretty smooth, so it might just stand a chance.
