[PN] HTC Edge: First Quad-Core Phone Revealed (Images) - Page 4

One thing that wasn't mentioned was LTE capability, with Edge only said to support 21Mbps HSDPA; it's possible that carrier-specific variants will still offer this highly-desired functionality. Also absent was mention of a specific version of Android, although if it doesn't ship with Ice Cream Sandwich (fairly unlikely), an upgrade would surely be deployed in short order.
I don't really care for 4G anymore. I find that wifi is much better and most places carry it. No point wasting your GBs/mo and 4G just drains battery.

Until they offer unlimited for the base plan of 50/mo or less from the better carriers, I'm using Wifi .

And to think the PSP Vita has a 2 GHz quad core, and a quad core gpu O_o

The performance problem with Flash is not about the number of cores. It's mostly about single thread performance, and graphical acceleration. If you don't play graphically heavy games on phones, for now there isn't really no need for quad core. Rather, the raw performance of each core need to be improved.

There is limited multitasking one can do on a phone right now, so there is limited scope on getting significantly higher performance just by increasing the number of cores. You can have apps running in the background, say, syncing data, while you are doing something else. But unlike desktop computer, you don't run into situation where you have a few apps opened and running on your home screen.

I can see future tablet OS will take advantage of the availability of multi-core CPUs in a year or two, and introduce more desktop-like multitasking. It remains to be seen how this can be implemented on a phone with highly limited screen real estate.

Very interesting, this would be a great update to my 3VO. Quad core goodness!

Wish they were using the MSM8974 (though it's expected to be available in 2013), I kinda like Snapdragon, but Tegra 3 is pretty cool too. The battery life better last longer. >:]
I got a upgrade in July of next year....

One of the big focuses of Tegra was gaming performance was it not? They released a video talking about the improved arch, along side with the physics processing power. The 4 cores are going to be used extensively in tegra 3 games.

There is more to multi-core CPUs then just multi-threaded applications. We are dealing with mobile devices. The extra cores, if the single core performance remains the same or better (which is more likely the case), we'll see a significant drop in wattage if Nvidia coded their arch right.



Man, the size of this thing is good. I like larger phones. Most of my time spent on the phone is internet, texting, and document viewing. The extra room for the keyboard is going to help out a lot!

This is the exact same argument that people were making about computer processors a few years ago. I'm glad that I was an early adopter of a Q6600 back then though. I don't think I'll feel any different if I get a quad core phone next year.
