Broadcom BCM2727

Yeah, I know its just a chip and as just chip has little to no importance to most readers of this site, however what this little processor can do might be very interesting to you. Just imagine 12 megapixel stills and 720p H.264 video encoding for recording.

Now imagine all that in a mobile phone. There are already a number of devices that come really close to these stats already including a 10MP mobile phone in South Korea and the LG Viewty offering up video recording at up to 120fps, whereas this Broadcom chip offers up only 30fps.

Like I said, it’s not that much of a stretch, but the incorporation of an HDMI port is a new one that this chip also offers up. Just imagine this in a 3G iPhone with a 32GB flash drive, talk about dreaming.
