Google has announced that Chrome for Android is making its way to Intel-powered Android devices, though it did not clarify whether users will see any missing features or added incentive in the Intel version of the Google web browser. The key feature in Chrome for Android is the ability to sync with the desktop version of Google Chrome, something that is missing from competing browsers on other platforms such as Mobile Safari and IE on Windows Phone.

There is even the option to share pages from Chrome for Android with Chrome for the desktop and vice versa. This is great for users browsing at home who suddenly have to leave; by sending the webpage to Chrome for Android, users will not miss out on what they were viewing.

The Motorola Razr i the latest of the few available Intel-powered Android smartphones. The device sports a 2GHz single core processor, which Intel claims is more powerful than dual core ARM processors. It remains be seen how the device stacks up when it comes to battery life; this should come to light when the phone is released.

Other features includes an 8 megapixel camera, 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display, NFC, 3G, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi a/b/g/n.
