And you thought phones were fast now?

| December 8, 2010 | Reply

With the Nexus One we saw a new era ushered into the mobile world… 1GHz speed. Now that 2011 is approaching faster and faster we can look forward for our devices to do the same! Texas Instruments announced their new dual-core OMAP model 4440 processors that have the capability to have BOTH cores clocked to 1.5GHz!! Now that’s fast for a mobile phone! Also stated to support: 1080P 3D video, and can run front and back (dual) 12MP cameras working at the same time.  It will also provide 1.25x increase in graphics performance, a 30 percent decrease in webpage load time, and a 2x increase in 1080p video playback performance. All I can say is bring it on!!! These will be released to manufacturers for testing in early 2011.Also one thing I like to point out Motorola seems to like OMAP processors! Hopefully that means we will see some of these bad boys in the Motorola Droid line up over at Verizon. Anyone excited for the speeds new phones are going to be capable of? Worried about battery life with this new processors? Drop us a comment below and let us know.

Oh my.  Texas Instruments just announced their new dual-core OMAP4440 processor that can be clocked at 1.5GHz (possibly both cores), supports 1080P 3D video, and can run front and back (dual) 12MP cameras working at the same time.  It will also provide 1.25x increase in graphics performance, a 30 percent decrease in webpage load time, and a 2x increase in 1080p video playback performance.  Holy…yeah.  The processor is obviously aimed at mobile devices and will start rolling out to manufacturers for testing in the first half of 2011.

Just try to take a minute and think about that kind of power.  Mind blown?  We also all know that Motorola tends to favor TI OMAP processors over any other meaning our future Droid brothers will most certainly see these inside.  More info at the source link below.
