    The dual-core Samsung Orion chipset shows up in a tablet form

    The dual-core Samsung Orion chipset shows up in a tablet form

    At the ARM holdings symposium in Taipei yesterday, Samsung has showcased the internals of an upcoming tablet, and they were based on its own Orion chipset. The dual-core beast is based on ARM's next-gen Cortex-A9 architecture (all current phones are based on Cortex-A8), and supports full HD video recording and playback.

    This 1080p video playback can occur on two screens of the device itself, and an external one simultaneously, thanks to the quad-core Mali 400 graphics processor. As usual, the new chipsets come in a small package and with reduced battery consumption, compared to today's silicon.

    The graphics capabilities are said to be five times those of the current mobile 3D king - Samsung's own Hummingbird chipset, which puts Orion on par with current generation gaming consoles, such as the Xbox 360, and the PlayStation 3, and also with the latest Snapdragon chipset.

    Phones and tablets with the fourth generation Snapdragon, however, won't appear before 2012, while Samsung Orion will finish sampling by the end of this year, meaning that we will see it in mind-blowing phones and tablets as early as next year. The cherry on the cake? Samsung will be able to produce 7" Super AMOLED screens of next generation by the summer of 2011, which will probably end up in the thinnest and lightest tablets the world has seen.

    Unfortunately, the rumored 10-incher in the Galaxy line will have to make do with a TFT-LCD display, similar to the one on the Samsung Galaxy Tab, as nothing is yet heard for mass production of Super AMOLED displays bigger than seven inches. Still, next year cannot come soon enough.

    Man...see, We need more info about the Orion, the Snapdragon dual core, was hoping for an OMAP dual core...

    I got a feeling the Orion might be better than Tegra 2 in battery life and gpu.
    The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
