Check out this interesting GLBenchmark 2.0 at anandtech.com, they compare the performance in benchmarks for following devices:
- Nexus S and Samsung Galaxy S using SGX540
- myTouch 4G and T-Mobile G2 using Adreno 205
- iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPad using SGX535
- Nokia N900 and Motorola Droid using SGX530
- Nexus One, Optimus One and HTC EVO 4G using Adreno 200
Not in the benchmark, Droid X, Droid 2 and the Archos Gen8 Tablets have SGX535.
It will be interesting to see what will happen once possibly more competition comes with ARM Mali-400 in the upcoming ARM Cortex-A9 dual-core processors and where its performance might be. Also I’d like to know what kind of performance Tegra 2 does for this 3D stuff. What Qualcomm Adreno 220 is cooking for its upcoming dual-core Snapdragons. And what 3D on-die GPU Marvell is going to use (supposedly does 200 million triangles per second) in its upcoming 628 Tri-core processor.
After the low cost $150 2.8″ capacitive Huawei IDEOS U8150 (also known as Huawei Ascend?), Huawei is now also bringing larger screen perhaps a bit higher end X5 at 3.8″ and X6 at 4.1″ screen sizes, also including a 1Ghz processor and a HDMI output. It will be interesting to see at what prices those are going to be sold at unlocked, if Huawei plans to provide cheaper alternatives to the high end Android phones.

Nicole of Netbooknews reports from the LG Optimus press conference in Taiwan. The phone is a 480×320 3.2″ Android phone to retail unlocked for about $332 in Taiwan. It uses the 600Mhz ARM11 Qualcomm MSM7227 processor.
Watch my video of Windows Phone 7 filmed last february featuring a demonstration of the OS by Windows Phone 7 product manager Erik Helgerson. Smart phones are the new PC, the fastest growing consumer electronics segment, within a year or two, more smart phones will be sold worldwide each year than PCs and Laptops. This is why Microsoft is trying very hard to bring this new smart phone OS, based on Windows CE 7, they seem to be even suing Android manufacturers like Motorola for not using it.
Quick overview of the HTC Wildfire, 259€ smart phone as presented at the T Mobile booth at IFA. Sorry about the manual focus set to infinity, I still forgot to put it back to auto after filming the fireworks.
Here’s my review of the Dell Streak, 5″ capacitive Qualcomm Snapdragon powered Android Tablet, as posted by JKKmobile.com a few minutes after I first tried to use his unit at the recent Computex in Taiwan.
The 4.8″ to 5″ Android Tablet is in my opinion the coolest and the best size for a Tablet because it is the largest possible screen that fits in most pockets, thus this form factor Android tablet can be carried around everywhere with the largest screen size for web browsing and watching videos and launching apps always available.
Archos created and has been selling this form factor since 2003 with their release of the Archos AV300, back then the first large screen PMP device. Since 2005, Archos released the first WiFi enabled touch screen embedded Linux Qtopia based PMA430 and for over 9 months, the Android based Archos 5 Internet Tablet has been available on the market at $249 in Radio Shack.
The release of the Dell Streak is a good thing for Archos as it popularizes the form factor. Also, I believe Archos has some advantages even with their 9 month old Android product such as pricing with a 9 month old pricing that is at about half the launch price of the Dell Streak, support for all video codecs and high profile H264, larger storage capacities up to 500GB, HDMI output, USB host and a bunch of other features. Also, Archos is expected to release 45nm based OMAP3640 Android tablet devices by September, thus further improving on the features and on the price/value performance.
