  Motorola Mobility has confirmed that the Motorola Droid RAZR M, announced earlier today by Motorola and Verizon, will be coming to the UK with a slight name change and a new processor. The UK variant will drop the Droid branding and be simply called the RAZR M. The Qualcomm S4 processor will also be replaced with an Intel processor.

Motorola’s big press event is about to start, and that means plenty of exciting new Android-related announcements are on their way.

With that in mind, we now have a press shot of two upcoming Motorola smartphones, the Droid RAZR M and the Droid RAZR HD.

The results may seem surprising as it seems common knowledge that Atom would beat ARM chips in performance clock per clock, but as I’ve said before, Intel is not yet ready to take on the mobile market with its Atom chips.
