Quad-core smartphones don’t sound too exciting now because they have already been showcased around by the tech companies during this year. However, Nvidia intends to ramp up the quad-core excitement and has plans of having launched up to 30 quad-core phones before the year 2012 expires.


These ambitious plans were unveiled by Nvidia’s General Manager Mike Rayfield during the annual investor meeting of Nvidia. While quad-core phones are already available, the fact remains that smartphone vendors are facing a tough time trying to keep slim while using quad-core processors. Compared to a dual-core processor, the contemporary standard in most widely-used smartphones, a quad-core processor will require more power as well as more space.
Moreover, dual-core phones aren’t ‘out-of-date’ yet. Smartphone users, far and wide through the world, are using dual-core phones and are quiet happy with their speed and efficiency. They may occasionally yearn for a faster device but still, they are not unhappy with the dual-core era.
However, Nvidia’s Tegra 3 processors have been touted as highly efficiency and super fast. And therein lies the incentive for smartphone vendors as well as the users. While the currently existing quad-core phones are quite expensive, Nvidia is promising that it will be able to make the upcoming quad-core phones available under $300. That can be a huge step forward for the quad-core revolution.
Nvidia is also trying, at the same time, to procure competitive pieces to go with quad-core phones. For instance, the company has now revealed that its LTE mode, Icera 410, has been certified by AT & T while at the same time unveiling yet another LTE modem, Icera 500.
When quad-core devices will be coupled with these LTE modems, Nvidia promises that they will be able to deliver a speed and performance which won’t be matched by any other device. The question is, is the Android user base ready and willing for the quad-core phones?
