    [Rumor] Motorola Targa May Be first Tegra Kal-El Quad-Core Phone


    Although these pics surfaced recently of the coming Motorola Targa, no solid info has leaked about the device. Some industry rumor/speculation suggests that it could be the first Android phone to come with the NVIDIA quad-core chipset codenamed "Kal-El" that we reported about previously. It might be pretty impressive if this 'rumint' turns out to be true. What do you guys think? If this does turn out to be the first quad-core phone, and it will come out this Christmas, does that affect your buying decisions? What do you think is the likelihood that it even is quad-core? Let's speculate.

    Thanks to our tipster, ilikemoneygreen!

    I say its a longshot that we see Quad Cores in any HANDSETS this year. Tablets possibly but not phones.

    The Targa is definitely worth waiting for regardless if it has a Quad Core or not : )

    I've waited long enough. It will be Bionic for me unless there is a serious problem with the release. I'm hoping to see the handset in April and will sign a 1-year agreement. If quad-cores are on the horizon, I'm happy to jump on that boat in summer 2012.

    Sounds interesting, but I will probably still go ahead and use my upgrade for the TB or Bionic since I can do it right now.

    Does this smell like chloroform to you?

    Relating to nvidias little mobile roadmap, how would this kal-el chip compare to a core 2 duo?

    Running on the numbers, a moto zoom gets ~80 MFLOPS, right? If this cpu really hits the 5x performance they say it could that is not even half a gigaflop. My now ancient P3 system would still be wayyyy more capable.

    A phone can have 32 cores, but it won't make any difference if Android doesnt' support multi cores. Once that is added in, then it will matter and I think the current DualCore phones will sky rocket in performance. But for now, I'm happy with my DX, especially if the cracked bootloader turns out to be true.

    Jeeeez and I am sitting here waiting for the Bionic to upgrade to from my D1. Wish I knew how much longer I'd have to wait. If it is until December, I might just go for the Bionic.
