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.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
