And another one ahead of next week's Mobile World Congress, again from ZTE but today together with Nvidia. Both companies jointly announced the upcoming launch of the first Tegra-powered Android smartphone with Nvidia's Icera modem technology - the the ZTE Mimosa X. The Mimosa X is powered by the Nvidia Tegra 2 mobile processor, sporting a dual-core CPU and GeForce GPU as well as the Nvidia Icera 450 HSPA+ modem, comprising baseband and RF processors, featuring excellent throughput and low power. It will run on Android 4.0/Ice Cream Sandwich, featureing a 4.3" qHD touchscreen, a rear 5 megapixel and front a camera as well as 4 GB of storage, which is expandable to 32 GB.
The Nvidia Icera 450 supports up to 21 Mbps category 14 HSPA+ with fast downloads in fading channels, IceClear interference cancellation technology for even faster throughput at the cell edge and advanced Release 7 features for an ultra-low latency network response.
The ZTE Mimosa X will deliver super multimedia capabilities, including Bluetooth advanced audio distribution profile (A2DP), Dolby sound, digital living network alliance (DLNA) compatibility for easy sharing of content, HD video record and play, dual microphones, and built-in gyroscope.
The Mimosa X will be launched around Q2 2012. Positioned squarely for the mainstream market, it brings new levels of performance and connectivity to this large segment of users.
