Mike Rayfield, GM of the Mobile Business Unit at NVIDIA, gave me a tour of the NVIDIA stand where he showed me the latest Tegra 3 tablets and smartphones based on the quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 as well as some amazing mobile gaming demos.
Massimiliano Villani, Senior Manager of Mobile Marketing at Samsung, discussed with me the benefits of 32nm HKMG process technology along with the advantages of coupling the ARM Cortex and Mali GPU technologies in the Exynos platform.
I stopped by the Giesecke & Devrient stand where they walked me through the MobiCore security platform and advantages that ARM TrustZone brings to their products.
Jerry Su, the Chief Architect of the Mobile Application Processor at Huawei, gave me a demo of the Ascend D Quad, their latest quad-core smartphone, which features the recently announced K3V2 processor (based on quad core ARM Cortex-A9).
At the TI stand I got a chance to demo full HD video streaming on an LTE modem with OMAP 4 and OMAP 5 integration.
This week HTC announced three new Android HTC One series smartphones. With these handsets, HTC has figured out just about everything a user could want including Beats Audio integration for excellent sound quality, burst mode on the camera which allows you to take a series of quick photos in sequence, and a sleek and slim design which is easy on the eyes. I’ll definitely be looking for this one when it hits the market.
