Perhaps he should be called Mr. X-Core, where "X" equals the number of CPU cores.

The glass [...]

Incredibly thin and powerful, the Motorola DROID RAZR was spotted making the rounds at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for its regulatory tests and certification. The device, however, appears to be the non-LTE variant, as it happens to sport radios for GSM and WCDMA bands commonly associated with AT&T’s network.
The device has been given FCC ID IHDP56ME2, although that does not say much about whether the device, in fact, is the Motorola DROID RAZR. The telling clue is revealed in one line that speaks of the tested device’s battery part number: SNN5899A, which is the same part number for the Motorola DROID RAZR’s non-removable, [...]
