HTC to increase NVIDIA's Tegra 3 orders, quad-core phones all but confirmed for MWC
HTC vowed that it is diversifying its chip suppliers after the weak Q4 results, and will be using silicon other than Qualcomm's, in order to be on top of the newest trends, and speed up updates. This has reportedly led to increased orders for NVIDIA towards its Tegra 3 chip, which is expected to debut in the HTC Edge, aka Endeavor or Supreme.

It will be the first NVIDIA-laden phone from HTC, and will allow the manufacturer to be one of the first to market with a quad-core handset - something that would have been impossible if it stayed only with Qualcomm as a chipset supplier.

NVIDIA, in its turn, all but confirmed that we will be seeing a bunch of quad-core phones announced at the MWC expo in two weeks, by outing the invitation on the right. Since we already have the ASUS Transformer Prime tablet launched with quad-core Tegra 3, this "latest quad-core innovation" NVIDIA is talking about in the press conference invitation could only be Tegra 3's phone version.

But, hey, let's not overthink it - the guy on the rollercoaster ride is just holding a smartphone, not a tablet! Besides the HTC Edge, we are expecting the LG X3 fighter jet to flaunt a quad-core heart, made possible courtesy of Tegra 3.
