NVIDIA have just revealed their roadmap for the future today at their annual GPU Technology Conference, and we just got a glimpse at the future of mobile computing and Tegra. We've been hearing a bit lately about Open GL being found in the Nexus 4 drivers, but NVIDIA's apparently confirmed it right here today.
Samsung is keeping up with the curve on its Jelly Bean updating cycle, Motorola is still stuck on Ice Cream Sandwich. Over the weekend, the company updated its plans on its Ice Cream Sandwich release schedule. They've officially set new timelines for devices like the Droid Bionic and the Xyboard.
Fujitsu isn't what we'd call a household name here in the US when it comes to Android devices, although they do make plenty of other laptops and ultrabooks. While we've seen Android devices from them before, and even received some hands-on time with their new ARROWS ES waterproof tablet at CES, this latest roadmap reveals two entirely new tablets coming soon -- one looks to rival the Transformer Prime too.
GSMarena we now have a full 2012 roadmap that has leaked with a list of Sony's upcoming device expected launch dates, codenames, and pricing. Obviously this is only a roadmap and many things are likely to change but lets check it out and break down the possibilities.
roadmap of Samsung and none of the devices or numbers seem to be matching up but if this latest leak reveals anything, it's that AT&T has plenty of Samsung phones on the way running Android.
roadmap last week and Samsung later denied it, but now we have the same specs showing up again and with launch dates too. I have a feeling this might just be the real deal.
Mobili linija spilling plenty of beans and all the details from phones to tablets.
October: Samsung Continuum (SCH-i400) - This is the dual-screen Galaxy S phone that was leaked earlier this week. It’s new processor, running under the code name “Garnett,” will be shipping in the device and clocked at 1GHz. We have not heard much else about this device so it’s probably still in the early stages of testing, expected to launch sometime in late October, and possibly November if things get further delayed. Motorola Venus - The Motorola Venus is rumored to be the BlackBerry style Droid that we have seen as far back as July. The tipster to Engadget even claims it as being very similar to a BlackBerry with a “BlackBerry look and feel.” This device will feature a full QWERTY keyboard, 1 GHz TI OMAP3 CPU, and GSM and CDMA radios. Motorola Droid Pro - Finally a name for what we have been referring to as the Droid 2 World Edition. This may be the phone that will replace the Droid 2 making it standard as we have heard and will feature a 1.2-1.3 GHz processor. With shots and so much information we can definitely expect this by the end of October. HTC Merge - Just as we saw a few days ago, Verizon is getting their own version of the Desire Z naming it the HTC Merge. The device has identical specs to the Desire Z and G2 and should be hitting shelves in October as well. November: LG enV Pro (with Android) - the enV pro will be a uniquely designed clamshell device with dual screens, global radio, and a 1 GHz processor. This is probably the same device that was hinted as the LG enV Touch 2. Following LG’s habit of including NVIDIA Tegra 2 processors in their high-end phones, it’s likely we will see dual-core in the evV Pro. December: Motorola Droid (Tegra 2) - With very little information on the upcoming Droid from Verizon and Motorola we can only assume it’s going to be a new device and not an update of the Droid 2 when it ships in December. 2011: Motorola Stingray - This is the Motorola tablet that we have been hearing about for quite some time now. Engadget has claimed that it will feature a 10-inch display, Tegra 2 processor, 16GB internal storage, and will be running Android 3.0 when it launches in early 2011. The tablet will launch with only 3G support but an LTE modem will be provided later in the year by Motorola. So that’s what is coming to Verizon in the next couple of months. Thoughts? Expectations?
