Android Community 101: What is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Game Pack?

In what might appear to be a very similar fashion to their competitors, Qualcomm has today announced that they're working with gaming developers to produce an optimization program for console-quality games, this "Game Pack" initially containing 100 mobile games for Android. These games will all be optimized for Snapdragon-based mobile devices but, unlike Qualcomm's competitors, these games will not be limited to Qualcomm processor-laden devices. Qualcomm's Adreno GPUs in Snapdragon mobile processors will bring the top excellence in these games, but they'll be able to run on masses of other platforms from the start.

LG Revolution Review

Welcome to the Revolution! This is LG's newest effort for Verizon, the LG Revolution running on their 4G LTE network. This device features a 4.3-inch 480 x 800 pixel resolution TFT display and a single core Snapdragon MSM8655 1GHz processor, connecting with Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, HDMI, DNLA, and it's got Netflix! That this is one of the most important draws to the device makes us wary of it. But behold, this is an LG phone and we've been rolling out with some rather impressive LG phones as of late. The LG Optimus 3D and the T-Mobile G2x were pretty excellent, how does the LG Revolution add up?

Pantech Releasing 5″ Android Device, Can’t Decide if it’s a Tablet or Phone

In my opinion a 5" screen is smack dead in the middle of the dead zone that exists between tablets and phones. While the Dell Streak used this same screen size, it was far from the being a top seller, mostly because people thought it was just too big. If you're going to get a tablet, 10.1" seems to be the magic number, but at 7", both the Nook Color and Samsung Galaxy Tab are great tablets. A 5" device though, leaves you wanting more screen as long as you're going that big to begin with. It appears that Pantech and I don't see eye to eye.

Pantech 1.5 Ghz dual-core phone in Korea only – but why?

If you are like me and have been watching for all of the latest dual-core phones coming out lately, you'll probably wonder the same thing as me regarding this next phone. It sure sounds like a beast. Pantech plans to release the worlds first dual-core 1.5 Ghz smartphone called the Vega Racer. The only thing is for now it seems to be at their home in Korea only. They are well known in those parts but not so much in the West. I'm wondering why they have the speed burst, but we don't.

BSQUARE Mobile Development Device packs 1.5GHz Snapdragon MSM8660 [Video]

BSQUARE and Qualcomm have got together and produced a new Mobile Development Device (MDP), this time based on the new 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon MSM8660 chipset. An Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone intended to help developers test and optimize their apps for the new, asynchronous SoC, the MDP has a 3.61-inch touchscreen, 13-megapixel rear camera and 16GB of internal storage. There's also 1GB of RAM, a front-facing 1-megapixel camera, a microSD card slot, HDMI port, USB On-The-Go support and the usual mixture of WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. BSQUARE also preloads several system-monitoring apps, including Qualcomm's Adreno Profiler for optimizing 3D graphics performance and Trepn Profiler for optimizing app power consumption. Unfortunately this sort of platform doesn't come cheap, and the BSQUARE MDP is a lot more expensive than your average Android smartphone. It will go on sale from today, priced at $1,350.

Samsung 2GHz dual-core Smartphone incoming; Exynos to take on Snapdragon

Samsung's Galaxy S II may have gone through an overclock before it even launched, taking the dual-core CPU to 1.2GHz (and handily matching the HTC Sensation) but apparently the company has even higher ambitions for mobile processors in the coming months. According to Korea's Maeli Business Newspaper, Samsung is planning a 2GHz dual-core smartphone "by next year". "We are planning to release a 2Ghz dual core CPU-equipped smartphone by next year," an unnamed Samsung exec told the newspaper. "This product will have the data processing capacities of a regular PC" he continued. Although the exact nature of the processor is unknown, it's believed to slot into Samsung's Exynos branding. Samsung is also expected to begin offering the Exynos chips to other manufacturers, taking on Qualcomm's Snapdragon in the process. [via Engadget]

Xperia Play CDMA phone hits the FCC

The Sony Xperia Play made a repeat performance at the FCC this weekend, as it's CDMA twin received Federal consideration. The inaugural Playstation certified handset, shows a SIM card slot that's different from Verizon's 4G LTE devices. This is leading some to speculate if this is a 3G only device, at least for testing purposes. We haven't seen any 4G association with the phone's advertizing with Verizon, and only rumors are circulating as to the Xperia Play launching later this month. But as we reported here, the Xperia Play is coming to 11 markets around the world, just not the US initially.
