NVIDIA at Mobile World Congress

That NVIDIA is bringing quad-core smartphones to Mobile World Congress should surprise exactly no one. We saw the first quad-core tablet prototype a year ago, and in August NVIDIA told us we'd see phones in early 2012. And we're closing in on Mobile World Congress, just a few short weeks away. And there's a smartphone pictured in this invite. So, yeah. They're coming.

Android Central at Mobile World Congress We try not to read too much into these press invites, we really do. Who knows what agency made them. But we can't help but notice what looks like an HTC Incredible S (aka the Droid Incredible 2 on Verizon) in dude's hands there. (We've blown it up for posterity; note the plateaued battery cover and usual HTC positioning of the camera and flash.)

Now, what you see in this invite certainly looks different than the HTC Edge -- long rumored to be one of the first quad-core phones, never mind one of the first from HTC to use an NVIDIA system-on-a-chip -- render that leaked in November 2011. But stranger things have happened.

Will we indeed bear witness to the marriage of HTC and NVIDIA in Barcelona, Spain? Stay tuned, folks, and keep your eyes glued to our Mobile World Congress page for all the latest.

NVIDIA's Mobile World Congress press invite points to quad-core phones


is that the guy always talking about his droid charge that is so blazing fast that it is currently burning up in the atmosphere as it reaches terminal velocity? if so, then that is funny.

Yes, it is that person who keeps trying to justify his purchase of a phone, and seems to make lies, and keep out important facts in his justifications and seems to think quad-core phones and ICS updates would have been out and released by CES.

Yes, that is our guy. I lightly mocked him in a post here a month or two back where I claimed something ridiculous and then started talking about (completely unrelated, mind you, just like he does), how my Droid Charge was so blazin' at 1300mhz.

Unfortunately, not one of you replied to that post! Where were you guys!? All I got were one or two people going " Huh?" and I was marked as spam, hahaha.

That is hilarious man, I thought I was the only one who calls this guy out. But the dude that mentioned the atmosphere wins.

The funny thing is, the first thing I thought following CES 2012 was, "HA! I wonder what that guy with his blazing Droid Charge will say..." Now come to think of it, I haven't seen him around in quite some time lol.

Hopefully one of these quad-core phones will be available for Sprint this summer. I'm still using the original HTC Evo 4G, so it would be a huge upgrade for me.

I'm hoping Samsung will put out a quad-core version of the Galaxy Note.

At the current rate of evolution, we'll be missing four generations of phones before our carrier contracts expire. Something has to give here...
