Heard from the grapevine that the O2 XDA Flame will be launched in about a week or two. here’s a summary of the features:
The first dual processor PDA-phone, the XDA Flame incorporates the powerful NVIDIA(R) GoForce(R) GPU for unrivalled screen graphics, movie playback, photo viewing, and gaming performance. A large 3.6″ VGA touch screen and an Intel Xscale PXA processor running at 520 Mhz ensure that you stay productive and entertained while on the go. The product also feature 3G, 802.11b/g WiFi, a 2 Megapixel camera, a TV-out connector and SRS Mobile HD surround sound.
Here are more details about SRS Mobile HD and the GoForce GPU:
1) SRS Mobile HD
2) NVIDIA GoForce 5500 handheld graphics processing unit (GPU)
A handheld GPU that enables fluid digital TV, high-fidelity surround sound, rapid multi-shot photography, and console-class 3D graphics on mobile devices, the NVIDIA GoForce 5500 delivers a host of multimedia features, including playback H.264, WMV9 and MPEG-4 video up to D1 resolution at 30 frames per second (fps). The GPU is also compatible with major mobile TV standards including DVB-H, ISDB-T, and DMB networks. Users will be able to experience surround sound processor, including crossfade and multistream technologies that help to prevent breaks between songs and music cut out when the ringtone is activated.
I do hope they launch it with Windows Mobile 6 instead of the published 5.0. Now all we need is someone to build 3D enabled or Graphics intensive applications so that I can impress the hell out of Blackberry and Symbian fans. Someone?
