    Some info on the OMAP4430

    I was doing some research, bc I think the droid 3 is going to be my next phone. I looked up the OMAP4430 (Droid3 chipset) and found out some exciting information:

    OMAP 4
    The 4th generation OMAPs, OMAP4430, 4460 and 4470 all use dual-core ARM Cortex-A9s as well as two ARM Cortex-M3s running at 266 MHz to offload the A9s in less computionally intensive tasks to increase power efficiency.[5][6][7] 4430 and 4460 use a PowerVR SGX540 integrated 3D graphics accelerator which runs at a clock frequency of 304 and 384 MHz respectively compared to previous incarnations of SGX540 typically at 200 MHz making them theoretically much faster.[8] 4470 has a PowerVR SGX544 GPU that supports DirectX 9 which enables it for use in Windows 8 as well as a dedicated 2D graphics core for increased power efficiency. All OMAP 4 comes with an IVA3 multimedia hardware accelerator with a programmable DSP that enables 1080p Full HD and multi-standard video encode/decode.[9][10][11][12][13] OMAP 4 use ARM-Cortex A9s with ARMs SIMD engine (Media Processing Engine, aka NEON) which may have a significant performance advantage in some cases over Nvidia Tegra 2s Cortex-A9s with non-vector floating point units.[14] It also uses a dual-channel LPDDR2 memory controller compared to Nvidia Tegra 2s single-channel memory controller.
    I'm really curious about the Cortex M3 cores used to increase power efficiency. Hopefully this, combined with a lack of LTE will give this phone pretty decent battery life.

    This is really cool news especially the right SOC config to fully support 1080p recording and playback. Now all you need is a 32GB Class 10 microSD card, especially since we won't get one in the box, thanks Verizon. You do know that the list price will likely be $449.99 even though it has no memory card.

    Perhaps the first Moto phone with ICS in it, 720p display etc. my guess is CES 2012 announcement with a fall 2012 release by Moto since they cannot get anything out on time. Hello Moto, where is the Bionic, its been 6 months.

    I'm curious about this as well. If they can deliver a significant increase in performance along with a significant increase in battery life I may consider giving up my og Droid regardless of no 4g. The fact that 4g isn't in my area (Kansas City) makes it a little easier of a decision.
