Smartphones to catch up to Moore’s Law

As reported on Smartphone Thoughts, HTC is working on a new version of the Excalibur called Cavalier. I can see it coming together now, my dream device.

Checkout the features:

“HTC has loaded it up with a 400MHz Samsung CPU! Can you say fast? If that wasn’t reason enough to be excited, then I’m sure the Quad-Band (GSM/GPRS/EDGE) with UMTS (2100/850/1900), HSDPA and WiFi 802.11b/g will get your attention. No? Ok, how about 128MB ROM, 64MB RAM, Bluetooth 2.0, 2.4 inch 320×240 screen, 2 mega-pixel camera, and a 1050mAh battery all packed into a package that’s just a little larger than the Excalibur.”

The 400mhz is something that I’ve been asking for, for a long long time now. I can’t wait!

    I’ve got one of these in the HTC Tytn branding and it’s very cool.

    UI could do with some more unified organisation but it’s fast, responsive and packed with features. if you’re interested.

    Hi Damien,

    yeah I have that too but it’s a Pocket PC. very much larger than the Excalibur that i’m using. I’m a T9 "phone first" fan 🙂

    on that note, the PocketPC should move to 600mhz or more. we haven’t been moving forward for a while.

    We can blame it all on the advances (or lack) of the battery.
