Texas Instruments OMAP Blaze on Sale Now

Texas Instruments OMAP Blaze on Sale Now

The Texas Instruments OMAP3 and OMAP4 mobile development platform is something that we've followed pretty extensively here at SlashGear. With an in-depth look at what the platform as a whole offers, plus not just one, but two different hands-on videos of the whole set up in action, we're pretty comfortable in saying that TI's creation is one of the most interesting things we've seen in a long time. That's why we're happy to see that their OMAP Blaze is now on sale. In four variations, no less.

Pathpartner Skype 720p and Ittiam 4-way video chat get TI OMAP4 demo

Texas Instruments told us they were more interested in showing what their OMAP processors could do than telling us, and the TI booth at MWC 2011 was bristling with vendors showing what they'd coaxed out of OMAP4 chipsets. Video conferencing companies Pathpartner and Ittiam shared a stand with their offerings, the former pushing 720p HD Skype calls, the latter four-way video calls in which only a single participant need have an OMAP4-based device.

TI OMAP4440 processor debuts: 1.5GHz dualcore, 3D 1080p and more

Texas Instruments has announced its latest mobile processor, the TI OMAP4440, a SoC packaging a pair of 1.5GHz ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore CPUs along with two ARM Cortex-M3 cores to power-efficiently offload time-critical and control tasks. Coupled with the POWERVR 3D graphics engine, that provides a quoted 1.25x increase in graphics performance (including 2x faster HD video playback, with support for 1080p60 and 3D stereoscopic 1080p) and a 30-percent cut in webpage loading times.

We've had a lot of things to cover when it comes to Texas Instruments' OMAP4, especially when it has anything to do with that Blaze name.

And now, Texas Instruments is cramming all of the goodness of that Blaze moniker into, that's right, a tablet!

Texas Instruments gesture recognition demo [Video]

It wasn't all OMAP4 overload at Texas Instruments' stand here at Mobile World Congress 2010; the company is also showing off its latest attempts at gesture recognition. TI reckons tomorrow's smartphones could better be controlled by single- or multiple- finger gestures performed in front of the handset, rather than multitouch limited to the display, and they've come up with a way to recognize 3D movements with a single, inexpensive webcam.

Texas Instruments Blaze video demo

Texas Instruments Blaze video demo

Back when we gave you a sneak preview of Texas Instruments' OMAP4 developers device - since named the Blaze - what we really wanted to show you was video demo of its strutting its tri-display Full HD potential.  Unfortunately they weren't quite ready to go public with that, so we've had to wait until MWC 2010 this week.  While the next-gen chipset battle is nowhere near finished yet, it's certainly an exciting time for mobile devices; after the cut, the Blaze gets a video demo - including custom dual-screen Android - and TI tell us why not all ARM Cortex A8 cores are created equal.
