AT&T hopes Motorola Kobe is a slam dunk
With a name like Kobe, you would expect performance and sure enough, the phone finished behind just the DROID brothers (X and 2, respectively) in benchmark tests. Under the hood, the model shares the same Power VR GPU as those two DROID units, but has a somewhat slower 800MHz TI OMAP3 powering the handset. AT&T customers who feel that the Captivate is too loaded and the BACKFLIP is too plain, might find that the Kobe lands right in the middle. And for those Laker fans who are offended by the choice of name, there is some speculation that this model might end up being called Diablo.
