cpGushing over the 8+ megapixel camera phones grabbing all the headlines and attention in 2009? Psh, that’s nothing compared to what 2011 will bring us. Broadcom announced today a new processor of theirs that will usher in a new era and raise the bar as far as mobile picture/video taking is concerned.

The chip, named the Broadcom BCM2763 VideoCore IV Processor will enable mobile phones and other MID’s to support Full HD 1080p video recording as well as 20+ megapixel stills. But that’s not all. Other features that are currently reserved for stand alone cameras such as multiple shots per second, image stabilization, face and smile detection, and panorama mode will also make their way to the small screen.

For mobile photographers, the above is awesome enough. But pictures and video aren’t the only things mobile devices are being asked to do these days. Joining the increased picture/video chops provided the the Broadcom BCM2763, mobile gaming will also receive a rather hefty bump to the tune of native 1080p rendering that when coupled with HDMI outputs makes the topic of traditional console gaming dying out sound even more likely and closer than one would assume.

Ultimately, the 40nm chip (pricing still unannounced) will bring yet unseen amounts of visual eye candy and multimedia capabilities to mobile devices that will make even such gadgets as the upcoming Nexus One seem like a fisher price toy in as little as 2 years. Technology is practically leap frogging ahead. Can you keep up?
