The battery industry has not seen much improvement since last decade, and with growing power consumption by processors, our battery life is suffering. Luckily, Texas Instrument can change that. In a recent announcement by the official chipset provider for Android 4.0, Texas Instruments promised us our battery back. They indicated that their next generation OMAP processors will come with all day battery life. This promise is for the OMAP 6 processor which isnít set for launch until 2013. That means we have a year and a half of bad battery life to live through.
They arenít saying if we will also see performance improvements, but battery seems to be their focus. NVIDIA and TI seem to have opposite views; NVIDIA is going for power, which they seem to achieve every time they release a new processor, while TI is now focusing on all around improvements.
After news like this, I want to know what you guys think about TI VS NVIDIA. Is power our future, or battery life? Voice your thoughts in a reply and vote in the poll.
