TI working on 720p video chat through Skype?

Over at the Texas Instruments booth at Mobile World Congress, there's an interesting demo going on through TI's partner PathPartners showing off the HD capability of Skype through an Android handset. Using the OMAP 4 platform, PathParnters (along with Ittiam) have been able to create video calls in 720p and hope to get it Skype certified later this year.

Powerful Nokia OMAP4 Android Device Possibly in the Works

Take a look, if you'd like, at the portal -lxr.free-electrons.com for a Linux file automatically generated from the OMAP hardware databases, one with some spicy previews for what's to come early this year. In the first few lines you'll notice some lovely bits that could add up to a spicy new device from two of the biggest names in tech: Texas Instruments and Nokia. A device with an OMAP4 processor - is this the same processor announced back in December 2010 by TI, one with dual-core, 1.5GHz, support for 1080p video playback and conferencing, gesture recognition, two 12 megapixel cameras, and more? I'd bank on yes.
