Many martphone dual core CPUs run at 1GHz or less, in reality a 1GHz dual core CPU is much slower than a 2Gz single core CPU with the same architecture, because every app consists of sequential parts which cannot benefit from multicore (but multicore always helps when you run two CPU intensive apps at the same time).

Different types of design, offers different amonut of power and flexibility

> In reply to [deleted post]This is pretty stock Android UI.
A month ago I went from Scamsung's Touchwiz v3.0 to AOSP's Stock v4.0 UI.
And I must say that I don't miss Touchwiz at all!
The one thing it needs to improve is the launcher (same as Touchwiz). But thank god you have tons of totally diffrent concepts of launchers that fill any needs that you may have.
For me GO Launcher Ex is pretty OK.

This phone's design is awesome, mostly white version. Intel Atom CPU is also nice. Seen its action only in netbooks running Windows 7 smoothly. Let see its action on mobile device.
Moto has done mistake to choose single core. Lower clock with dual core is faster than higher clock single core.

The US price of $100 for Razr-M is with 2 year contract. The actual unlocked price is over $500. I definitely think Razr-I is a very good option and want to get one now.

Why you don't like europe Moto?

this is the beginning from them, wait until they have refined it and started producing multi core cpu which runs windows 8 and beyond...

At that price you can get HTC One S and forget app compatibility problems.
