HTC "Edge" Headed To the Market In 2012, Could Be World's First Quad-Core Phone

Labels: , , , , , ,

PocketNow is back at it again and leaking things that won't hit the market for a few months. Apparently, the smartphone you see above is an early picture of the HTC "Edge" which will possibly be the world's first phone with a quad-core CPU. The smartphone is going to be running Android but looks like it still has the traditional buttons so maybe they'll push the release back a bit, get rid of the buttons, and throw on Android 4.0 on this bad boy.

Anyways, getting right down to it, this is rumoured to feature: a 4.7-inch 720p display, 1GB of RAM, an 8MP camera, a front-facing camera, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, Bluetooth 4.0 support, Beats Audio, a body just over 10mm thick, and Beats Audio. The CPU inside of this should be the Nvidia Kal-El (Tegra 3) clocked at 1.5GHz which is damn speedy. This one should be launched in early 2012 so we could see an announcement at CES 2012 in early January.

Labels: , , , ,

Barnes & Noble's CEO, William Lynch, was the first one on stage at today's event and he bragged about how fast their company grew in the digital content space. have just introduced the Nook Tablet which will be battling Amazon's Kindle Fire. The tablet will be available on November 16 for $249 but they believe that they can compete with the Fire. The Nook Tablet packs a 7-inch VividView IPS display with a 1,024 x 600 resolution, a dual-core TI OMAP4 1GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a microSD card slot, WiFi b/g/n support, Netflix / Hulu Plusintegration, cloud storage, and an amazing battery that'll reportedly last 9 hours playing video.

Why will you want to spend the extra $50 on this tablet over the Kindle Fire? Barnes & Noble mentioned a bunch of different points: a better display with better viewing angles, 16GB which is more than the 6GB that the Fire has, more RAM (1GB vs 512MB), a lighter design, and better content rendering. For help on the Nook Tablet you can also go to one of their various (over 700) stores whereas Amazon doesn't have that kind of support. Yeah, they definitely took a swing at Amazon here.

If you're not willing to spend the money then the company has decided to reduce the price of their Nook Color and the touch-enabled Nook which will be referred to as the Nook Simple Touch. They'll be available on the 16th as well for $199 and $99, respectively. They've been working on the Nook Color's software and they're going to be pushing out the biggest update for it in the near future.
