Earlier today, Motorola and Verizon revealed the Droid RAZR M, a $99 smartphone that sticks a 4.3-inch, practically edge-to-edge screen into a decidedly tiny package. Now, Pocket-lint is reporting that Motorola intends to re-use the same RAZR M design for its first Intel-powered smartphone. We've been eagerly awaiting the fruits of a Motorola-Intel partnership ever since the companies announced one at CES, and soon after that we saw some alleged pictures of the first phone. Look familiar, no? Now, it appears that the device will be sold in both dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon and Intel Medfield Atom models, though Pocket-lint says the Intel version won't have the same name when sold.

Neither Motorola nor Intel would confirm or deny the report, but both companies have an event scheduled in London for September 18th, and we'll be there to bring you all the details. We're particularly interested in what the device might cost, as previous Intel phones have offered some pretty decent bang for the buck, and at $99 after rebate, the existing RAZR M appears to do so as well.
