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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
