Qualcomm Android Phone – it even runs Quake!

Qualcomm is at CTIA these year showing off the incredible functionality of some of their chips. One way they decided to show off this functionality was throwing together an Android phone. Then they put Quake on it.

Quake, a Doom-Like FPS from the good old days of PC gaming, is a fairly demanding game, especially considering they had it running, in full, in 3D, at 30 frames per second at a VGA resolution. This just goes to show that not only is Android a freaking amazing platform to be able to pull this off on the software side, but Qualcomms silicon chips are equally amazing for being able to pull it off on the hardware side of things.

To say that I want an Android Phone yesterday would be an understatement. However, for a device that can do that, I am willing to wait until its been perfected for the market, but once it lands, I expect to be able to easily install Quake or Doom, or both.
