HTC One X and the One S that hit the web earlier this week. You can see our awesome and detailed reviews from the links below but today I wanted to focus on benchmarks. Read on below to see who takes the top spot and is king of the mobile hill.

NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core powered HTC One X, and then the equally impressive One S with the dual-core Qualcomm S4 Krait processor. We've reviewed them both here at Android Community and will link to them below, but what we were impressed with (among many things) was the battery life and conservation.
Nexus Tablet rumors this evening: NVIDIA CEO spoke with the New York Times about lowering the price of Android tablets. Quote mister Jen-Hsun Huang: "“We took out $150 in build materials, things like expensive memory. At $199, you can just about buy a tablet at a 7-Eleven.” That's a long way from any sort of confirmation, but it shows that NVIDIA is as anxious as we are to lower the price of Android tablets, especially those with high-end components like the Tegra 3 processor.
Tablet S are only technically about six months old, they're running on hardware that's over a year out of date. we were wondering when a refreshed version would show up, and thanks to Blog of Mobile... well, we're still wondering, but now we know it's coming. The "V150" device spotted running NenaMark benchmarks isn't identified as a tablet, but with a screen resolution of 1280x800, it's either that or yet another 5+-inch mega smartphone, and Sony's design DNA doesn't lend itself towards the latter.
Transformer Prime Quad-core Bundle Giveaway. Where we have not one, but two of these bundles to giveaway to two lucky readers. This isn't just the tablet either. We are throwing in the Prime keyboard dock, and an awesome Powerbag Messenger carry case meant for tablets with a built-in battery. Get all the details below.
Nvidia's Tegra 3 quad-core processor, illustrated with a highly technical (and typically Apple) glowing blue line. An Nvidia spokesman took exception to this, pointing out that Apple's claims are far from scientific.
Federal Communication Commission's certification systems. Asus is only seeking certification for the WiFi version in the United States so far - it looks like it'll be a while before the LTE version makes it here, if ever.
4-Plus-1 Tegra 3 system on a chip. While the device itself isn't quite ready for prime time yet, Fujitsu is showing off a new Tegra 3 Ice Cream Sandwich phone with some tricks up it sleeve, namely an incredible 13.1 megapixel camera and a waterproof design. Officially designated "quad-core prototype" for the time being, expect to see something similar coming from Fujitsu sometime this year - though probably not outside of Asia, at least at first.
making a splash at Mobile World Congress thanks to a wide collection of smartphones - most of which have been announced in name only. One exception is the new Era, the Chinese OEM's highest-end smartphone due out some time in the next few months. We made a point of seeking out the Era for its take on the quad-core smartphone, since everyone and their parent company seems t have on to show off. Like most of its contemporaries, the ZTE Era uses Nvidia's Tegra 3 processor in its new 4-Plus-1 incarnation.
super-skinny Excite was... uh... exciting. Get a load of this 7.7-inch version of the hardware, with the all-important (and seemingly ubiquitous) addition of an Nvidia Tegra 3 processor. The beautiful little tablet is code-named the AT270, and in addition to the processor it sports a full 1280x800 AMOLED(!) screen, 1GB of RAM and - wait for it - Ice Cream Sandwich. This one's obviously in the early stages of development, but shows a lot of promise already - we'd be very surprised if it didn't reach retail shelves at some point this year.
