This "advertising" is utter bullshit

The "cough, Tegra 2, cough" handset is unrecognisable and not a handset I've ever seen on the market.

So, how do you know it's got a Tegra 2 inside?

What version of Android are they using? Are they both using the same?

What video playback software are they both using?

I could keep on going with the questions....

Typical sales rubbish...

It's too bad this new Qualcomm isn't currently planned for any phones...like the Tegra...

I'm not saying the Tegra2 is better, just that, sure this might be a good mobile processor, but the Tegra2 is actually slated for a number of phones/tablets.

So when this new Qualcomm is actually coming into devices, will we hear more about the Tegra3? or 4?

The HTC EVO3D and the HTC Sensation are using the new chip.

What are you guys talking about 3rd quarter?!? I thought the Evo 3D was slated for 2nd quarter!

I caught that too. I am hoping that it is just a mistake, since I haven't heard anything about a delay anywhere (engadget/BGR/here/etc.)
