First Quad-Core Device Revealed, The HTC Edge

Well I’ll be damned if TechCrunch doesn’t find this device “sexy”.  The Quad-Core processor race is on and it looks like HTC might be taking the lead with what they’re dubbing the “HTC Edge”.  The folks over at PocketNow have received, from a reliable source, a pic of the device and say it should have all of the typical bells and whistles.  The device touts a whopping 4.7-inch screen with 720p res, 1GB of RAM, an 8 meg camera with a 28-millimeter f/2.2 lens all wrapped up in a device just a hair over 10 mm thin.  And of course, the game changer is the supposed AP30 Tegra 3 CPU by none other than Nvidia, housing four 1.5 GHz cores.  “Wow” is right.

The device is said to most likely house 32 GB of internal storage and Bluetooth 4.0.  And of course, we can expect Beats Audio to be on board for crystal clear sound when playing audio.  It’s also possible the device will release with a number of HTC’s new reported services like the HTC Listen Music Store, Bookstore and Gaming Hub.  And to top it all off, the device could be the first to rock the new HTC Sense 4.0.  No word yet as to whether or not the handset will come with LTE radios on board, as of now we’re told there is support for 21 Mbps HSPA.  Neither was there word as to what version of Android the handset will ship with.  Ice Cream Sandwich perhaps?  We’ll see.  We should expect the new device and others to follow sometime around late 1st quarter or early 2nd quarter of 2012.  Maybe we’ll see something at CES?  Thoughts anyone?

About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.
