Future Smartphone and Tablets: More Nvidia CPU Cores

We all know how advanced mobile phones have become in say the last 6-7 years, I remember my first mobile phone being an old Motorola that actually looked like a home telephone with an aerial on one side. It didn’t have all the gadgets it simply made phone calls and text messages.

Nowadays I use my iPhone 4 which is packed full of features, a nice big colour screen, linked up to my wireless network all of my family and friend’s networks so when ever I enter a house it has fast Internet access. If you had told me 7 years ago that I would go from that Motorola to an iPhone 4 with all of the features, I would have told you to get out.

Now things are progressing further and I am left wondering what mobile phones are going to look like within the next 7 years and what features they will have then. It seems that the natural step for them is to move towards Nvidia CPU chips to speed up the performance without using up too much battery life, in a similar way to how PC’s have done.

Tablet PC’s seem to be on their way to this point already but think of the possibilities of a smartphone handheld device running all your favourite programs seamlessly. It really does make you think what other technology we will have. Anyway back onto the Nvidia chips, according to Agam Shah over at pcworld.com Nvidia is already looking to add more CPU cores to mobile devices. Already today most of the devices we carry around with us have a single core processors which aren’t powerful enough to run some things such as 3D gaming and video but the thought of Dual Core processing on handhelds being STANDARD by 2011 is simply mind blowing.

Can you remember your first phone? Where do you think we will be in say 10 years from now?
