LG’s upcoming Star smartphone features some pretty tricked-out specs that will put your current device to shame.
Indeed, the Android powered handheld boasts a dual-core, Tegra 2 processor, along with an HDMI port.
And as Phandroid’s Quentyn Kennemer points out, Nvidia’s T2 chip is definitely living up to its hype.
“Tegra 2 brings about a nice score on Quadrant and Berryjuice,” he writes.
“[It] completely outclasses [Samsung’s] Galaxy S.”
So, what’s the big deal, you ask?
Yeah, maybe the phone is a bit faster than my Nexus One or Galaxy S, but so friggin’ what?
Well, let’s just think about this for a moment.
Next-gen phones like the Star could very well compete with laptops, netbooks and tablets in our Cloud-centric future.
For example, don’t feel like lugging your laptop or netbook to and from work? No worries!
Simply hook your phone up to an external monitor and check your e-mail, browse the web and edit docs using a portable Bluetooth keyboard/mouse.
Of course, you can also use your next-gen phone to stream full-length videos from sites like Hulu, YouTube and Netflix.
Sure, I realize that the (mainstream) industry isn’t quite there yet, but such a mobile-centric future isn’t all that far off.
