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.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
