NVIDIA confirms quad-core smartphones in Q1

NVIDIA confirms quad-core smartphones in Q1

The Mobile World Congress event we'll be attending at the end of this month will indeed play host to more than one quad-core packing NVIDIA Tegra 3 smartphone, so says CEO Jen-Hsun Huang. Word of these devices was suspected for some time now, most recently seen via NVIDIA with their invite to the MWC 2012 events, but today is the final confirmation of what we'll see: not just one Tegra 3 base superphone, but several. It was during NIVIDA's annual and fourth quarter Fiscal 2012 earnings call that this news was released, and it wasn't the only good news the group had to share.

NVIDIA MWC 2012 invite teases world’s first quad-core phone

NVIDIA MWC 2012 invite teases world’s first quad-core phone

As the 2012 edition of Mobile World Congress quickly approaches, NVIDIA sends its invite to a series of events, the ultimate subject being their quad-core Tegra 3 processor sitting on a smartphone! This reveal will end up being the first time we've seen a quad-core System on Chip working on a device smaller than a tablet, and in true classic fashion, will mark one year exactly since we first laid eyes on the original announcement of Tegra 3, then code-named Project Kal-El. Superman has since landed on the Asus Transformer Prime and will soon find its way onto several other tablets, also perhaps being released at this same set of events.

LG X3 quad-core ICS smartphone teased in detail

This week it's time to get serious about quad-cores, be it in the tablets that defined CES 2012, the HTC Edge or Endeavor, whatever it ends up being called, and now the LG X3, the device you see in the image here in this post. This device has been tipped to PocketNow as having the fabulous NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor inside, working with a 4.7-inch 1280 x 720 pixel resolution display, and all the while working with a profile that's under 9mm. If this device feels half as nice as the LG G2X we saw last year, we're gonna love the heck out of it.

Samsung Captivate Glide review

Samsung Captivate Glide review

When it comes to releasing new devices, Samsung and the rest of the manufacturer bunch doesn't always aim for the top of the ladder - case in point, the Samsung Captivate Glide, a dual-core smartphone with a 4-inch Super AMOLED display and a slide-out keyboard. This device is being released on AT&T's 4G network (not LTE, mind you, just regular ol' 4G) and is currently one of the only dual-core smartphones with a keyboard on the market. If we turn away from the keyboard for a moment and focus on the rest of the device, I think you'll find that while this handset certainly doesn't seem to be up to the task of beating down the very top of the pack of smartphones out today, it's certainly a wrestler for the dual-core lovers of you out there in AT&T Land.

Zen Pinball for Tegra Android, an ultra-early hands-on look

This week we've gotten the opportunity to take a peek at a game that'll be released on the Android Market and through the Tegra Zone - Zen Pinball THD, exclusively for Tegra 2 dual-core processor-toting mobile devices. This is a game that allows you to take your love of pinball and apply it to a handful of utterly fabulous tables, both branded by the developers behind the game and developed inside other universes such as Marvel Comics with the Fantastic Four and Spiderman. Have a peek at a couple of tables in a very early build of this game here!

Fujitsu Arrows LTE Tab Android slate aims directly at hardcore market

Fujitsu Arrows LTE Tab Android slate aims directly at hardcore market

This week we've already seen one tablet that's set to be nearly indestructible AND able to run Android in a single bound, now here's another - this one goes by the name Fujitsu Arrows LTE Tab and is able to be submerged under water completely, not just sprayed a bit in the face. It's a 10.1-inch display having 1280 x 800 pixel resolution toting Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet at the moment, and inside you'll find Tegra! Not Tegra 3, unfortunately, that honor is thus far reserved for the ASUS amongst us. UPDATE: There's been some confusion about the chip inside this device - though the video below says NVIDIA, inside this tablet is actually the lovely Texas Instruments OMAP4430, seen in quite a few excellent Androids as of late - take note!

NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core mobile processor revealed and detailed

NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core mobile processor revealed and detailed

The next generation of mobile processors has arrived in the form of the NIVIDA Tegra 3, formerly known as Project Kal-El, a quad-core chipset with aspirations to dominate the Android landscape in 2012 as the Tegra 2 dual-core processor dominated the majority of 2011. Though many of the details have already been revealed by NVIDIA before today on how Tegra 3 functions and is able to bring you the consumer more power, less battery consumption, and more effective workload distribution, this marks both the official naming of the chip as well as the official distribution of easy to process videos on how Tegra 3 will affect the average mobile device user.

ASUS Transformer Prime sets massive benchmark pre-release

ASUS Transformer Prime sets massive benchmark pre-release

Over the past few weeks we've been seeing glimpses of the next big tablet release from ASUS, one that's all but guaranteed to carry the NVIDIA Kal-El quad-core processor, and today according to AnTuTu benchmarking system, we see that not only does this pair exist, it's a powerhouse! What you're seeing here in this post is a stack of benchmarks that've been recorded by AnTuTu (an app which tests synthetically several innards of an Android device including CPU, graphics, and more) and right up on top you'll see nothing less than the ASUS Transformer Prime, complete with a quad-core processor running at 1.4GHz! Below that you'll see another couple of hero devices from Samsung, (including the Galaxy S II from AT&T) but take note: they've only got two cores, half the power!

Grand Theft Auto 3 set for NVIDIA Kal-El quad-core optimized play

Grand Theft Auto 3 set for NVIDIA Kal-El quad-core optimized play

You may remember back in the middle of October when it was announced that Grand Theft Auto 3 would be coming back for a 10th anniversary edition that'd work with both Android and iOS - now it appears that NVIDIA is getting in on the action with Rockstar, providing their next-gen Kal-El (aka Tegra 3) quad-core processor-toting Android tablet to the group so that they can optimize the game for ultimate supremacy. Word comes this week from Adam Rosenberg who this week had the opportunity to check the soon to be released game out on the unnamed Kal-El NVIDIA tablet, an iPad 2, and an iPhone 4S. With the Kal-El tablet came the biggest surprises, both in that the game was running not on the tablet itself but through its TV-out connection, and secondly that Android's ability to work with USB controllers is programmed into the game so that an Xbox 360 controller works perfectly well!
