At CES Motorola was the first OEM to announce a partnership with Intel to use their new Atom Z2460 processor,  that was originally referred to as Medfield, for future Android devices.  We’ve learned from Droid-Life via our friends at Pocket-Now, that we may see that first Intel powered Android handset debut at MWC.

The device is said to debut with Ice Cream Sandwich. In the image above shows that there are no physical Android buttons on the front of the device which supports the ICS claim. As you can see there are also some features of Motorola’s Motoblur.
