HTC Desire HD

HTC Desire HD
Faster, better processors for smartphones.

     Smartphones weren't smart a few years ago as they were mostly used to keep you connected to the office and helped beleaguered execs from missing crucial appointments and meetings. These days, a smartphone is a mish-mash of gadgets rolled into one-miniature computers, camera, GPS, device and a phone- and that's not going to change soon. The demand of consumers, application and hardware have necessitated for aggressive innovation in the mobile CPU space and Qualcomm, the principal provider for CPUs that power the devices of such industry heavyweights like Samsung and HTC, is coming out with a new processor that's unlike anything the industry has seen before.

Unveiled during last year's recently concluded Computex, the company's third-generation Snapdragon chipsets are capable of running up to 1.2MHz, and are dual core.If that feels a bit underwhelming, keep in mind that when the first Android-powered smarphone, the HTC T-Mobile G1 launched two years ago, it had only clock speed of 528MHz. 

But what we're really looking forward to is the company's launch of its 1.5GHz dial-core QSD8672 chip slated sometime late this year. When it does launch in a smartphone it'll roughly have the same computing power as most high-end netbooks today.
