Like I said with thesmsung dual-core CPU that will be coming out, I hope they break the 1GHZ barrier soon... And maybe agree with all the guys here and hope that this processor does not eat the battery life that fast...

iPhone4guy....you're a complete douche bag. You sound just like the atypical Apple fan, as if you are some pre-programmed robot, that only knows what has been told to him.

Nobody cares that you happen to be in an area of strong signal reception, & don't suffer from attenuation of the signal. It's an issue moron.

I too, owned the iPhone4....(for exactly 27 hrs.) In that time, I dropped 11 calls, & the proximity sensor didn't work. At least I go to sell it to another myopic Apple apologist like yourself for $870.00.

My only regret is that I had but only one iPhone4 to sell, cause there is no shortage of Apple douche bags like yourself.

HD decode and output to an external monitor ... hmmm ... nice ... I suppose
Better 3D games on a smartphone ... hmmm ... nice ... I suppose

Where I see Tegra as having far more interesting potential is for leveraging the next leap in convergence -- integrating serious camera capabilities. Phones have merged with PDAs, but in most cases their cameras are still junk.

Damian (the Nokia N8 camera designer) has made the point that things like fast autofocus take a fair bit of compute power. Also, even before Adobe announced Photoshop Express there was discussion (e.g. on the DPReview forums) about the potential for using Tegra-like technologies for "embedded Photoshop" in cameras.

There is a distinct trend for many people to not bother with entry-level cameras anymore, they just use their phone camera (usually because it is handy, not because it is good). Tegra, and the like, will just accelerate this move.

Wow. I would love to see this on windows 7 with a 4.7inch amo led screen an a 10megapixel camera. I just hope they get a good battery for it. What an exciting time for cellphones. So much technology so fast.

I guess LG knew Samsung was going to come up with Orion. This must be their answer to this.

Although Tegra may look ok at the surface, I'm not sure if it will be enough to compete with Orion.

Look at this chart:

http://smartphonebenchmarks.com

It is already lagging Galaxy S phones in Quadrant results. Mind you, Quadrant probably doesn't use multi-cores, but both running at 1GHz, Samsung's Galaxy S is still beating Tegra 2 as of today (see the result for Toshiba AC100). I hope Tegra 2 eventually delivers better results - competition is always good! :)

2. but more reasonably, a limitless battery would kill a whole industry. One which makes money and one which most manufacturers have a stake it.
3. the costs of a limitless battery would be astronomical. Things that youu have to buy once and never again usually have super high costs. e.g cars, fridges, even dinner plates.

Great work but i think Lg might be a bit too late here. Samsung and HTC have taken so much of its market share in the smart phones area.
