So - smartphones use ultrasound now? I can totally see Apple advertising the new iPhone 6 being especially suited for pregnant women...

I love Qualcomm chip sets. Wow the S4 @ 2.5 GHz with both dual, & quad-cores is insane. Then you add the gestures on top, THAT is true innovation. I can’t wait to get the new HTC Evo 3D 2 or whatever they will call it next year. It should have the 28 nm, 2.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm S4 processor. That will be an insanely powerful phone. Sh*t June 2012 can’t come soon enough! I am very happy with my current HTC Evo 3D though. I have it rooted with the alpha version of CM7 at 1.2 GHz & the beast is so fast. Quadrant is now at 3000 to 3300 almost all the time. I am going to overclock it to 1.6 GHz & see the beast fly with CM7. I can’t imagine how fast it will be with a 100% complete version CM7. Wow I love my HTC Evo 3D! The S3 processor is truly shinning & will keep me entertained until these new S4 proccessors come out. Qualcomm DOES make great processors plain & simple!

hopefully qualcomm takes snapdragon from its walmart quality S2/S3 chips into something much nicer. high clock speeds sound nice but that doesnt always mean anything.

You know the Krait S4 28 nm chip sets will be good stuff. Qualcomm has good tech, to make those older chips still relevant on the S2 & S3 is a testament to their talent. Imagine what they can do with the new generation of chips. The best is yet to come from Qualcomm. Krait will be sick! My S3 running CM7 @ 1.2 GHz is very potent. Sense literally holds back the true power of the S3 chip set!

That would have to be some seriously fine tuned ultrasound I'd think... something on the level of Dare Devil sonar to pick of the minute differences in gestures. Unless we're just talking the larger and simpler hand/arm gestures here and not finger/gestures.
