Not be left behind in every other smartphone and tablet maker's dust, the latest iOS 5.1 beta has code pointing to quad-core devices being tested internally. Is the iPhone 5 and iPad 3 going to be bigger leap than we thought?
Pinch me. After last week's news of a rumored 4.7-inch quad-core HTC Edge phone, Engadget says that an even beefier HTC handset — Zeta — will pack a whopping 2.5GHz quad-core processor. How many of you even have quad-core computers clocked that high? I don't.
As of late, we're hearing more and more about mobile devices packing quad-core processors like Nvidia's Tegra 3. But what kind of power can quad-core get the end-user? Graphics and visual effects that nearly rival the Xbox 360. 2012 is going to rock.
Go quad-core or go home. Come 2012, that's going to be the mantra for a lot of smartphones equipped with powerful Nvidia Tegra 3 processors. A leak's revealed that HTC's "Edge" will be quite a little monster of a smartphone.
