It’s finally Friday, and I’m sure you’re ready for the weekend. Well, here’s a few of today’s top stories to ready you for the weekend – and of course our live coverage of MWC in Barcelona, Spain. Early this morning there was a rumor that the Samsung Galaxy B will have a bezel-free AMOLED display. It would be amazing if this trended into future devices across their line.
NVIDIA outed the first quad-core mobile processor, and it seems Qualcomm isn’t in a hurry to catch up. They’ve announced we shouldn’t expect a Qualcomm quad-core chip until Q4 of this year. They are more focused on making their current generation hardware more power efficient. This efficiency paired with massive batteries like the one found in the DROID RAZR Maxx will be just what Android users needed.
Official CyanogenMod 9 nightly ROMs are now ready for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S, and Motorola XOOM. It would be great to see it ported over to a Nexus tablet in the future as well, especially since the 7″ model is expected to start production in April. There’s not much known about the product, except that it’s “a tablet of the highest quality”.
Pictures of the HTC One X have leaked right before MWC, and it looks simply amazing. It’s supposedly supposed to sport Android 4.0 and a quad-core Tegra 3 processor, but expect the entire list of details in a few days during its official announcement. And wrapping up, make sure to download the new SlashGear v2.0 application for Android – available now in the Android Market! It will be the easiest way to access MWC coverage while on the go, and even offers the ability to “offline” articles for reading later.
