Motorola Mobility, a leading supplier of Google Android-based handsets that is about to become a subsidiary of Google, is preparing a smartphone powered by Intel Atom "Medfield" processor with Android 4.0 "Ice Cream Sandwich" operating system. The first image of such mobile phone have already hit the web.

Pocketnow web-site has published an image of a smartphone that is allegedly based on Intel Atom Z2460 "Medfield" system on-chip. The handset is completely button-less and seems to be rather thin (but rather big), which potentially means that the Medfield chip is not hot and does not require a cooling solution. The web-site claims that the device is running Android 4.0 "Ice Cream Sandwich" operating system with a new version of the MotoBlur user interface.

No specifications of the phone are revealed, but the web-site claims that that its camera is expected to be a major selling point, offering instant-on capabilities as well as 15 frame-per-second burst capture.

The emergence of a marketing image of a Motorola Mobility Intel Atom Z2460-based handset means that the device is set to be announced shortly. It is logical to assume that Motorola Mobility, as well as some other companies, will showcase their x86-powered smartphones at the Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona, Spain, later this month. What is interesting to know is when those devices are available commercially.

Intel and Motorola Mobility did not comment on the news-story.

Sony Ericsson Zylo all the way!a week of battery life, great sound, small, easy to carry, uninteresting for thiefs...you really don't need a big bulky phone, which offers you nothing but headache.

What, if anything, is the advantage in x86 (atom) in a phone, running Android?
