HTC Glacier to run dual-core Snapdragon CPU?

Rumoured HTC Glacier Android phone may feature super-fast processor.

Yesterday, it was HTC's Desire HD (AKA HTC Ace) doing the rumour rounds. Today, blog AlienBabelTech has reported some juicy details about another rumoured HTC smartphone: the HTC Glacier.

The Web site revealed alleged benchmark details for the codenamed smartphone, which is rumoured to be the first to run a dual-core Snapdragon CPU. According to a screenshot from GLBenchmark (which has since been removed), the HTC Glacier outperformed a number of smartphones running the standard, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, which has a single core.

Smartphones listed included the US-only Motorola Droid X and HTC EVO 4G — both of these models feature the same 1GHz processor used in popular Android phones available in Australia, including the Telstra-exclusive HTC Desire and the Samsung Galaxy S, currently sold through Optus. The benchmark listing also featured Apple's newly launched iPhone 4.

The Android-based HTC Glacier was allegedly utilising an 800x480 pixel display, but no further specifications have been leaked.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
