10 Mobile World Congress Launches To Keep An Eye On


Quad Cores Abound

If there's an emerging theme around the many new smartphone and mobile device launches happening at Mobile World Congress, it's the apparent industry embrace of quad-core processors. Nvidia is out in force with a number of new phones -- HTC's One X, ZTE's Era and LG's Optimus 4X HD, for example -- sporting its Tegra 3 quad-core processor, which can run at speeds up to 1.5GHz. And mighty Huawei has come to the table with its own quad-core processor, the K3V2, which appears on its higher-end Ascend D Quad and Ascend D Quad XL phones.
