**Gallery and Movie below

There are times in life where I’m truly in awe, stuck in a transfixed position, mouth open, drool and all. Slashgear’s early coverage of some MWC goodness provided by TI is nothing to sneeze at. The main topic of their brief visit to TI’s headquarters down south was to check out their new OMAP4 mobile processor. Showing off the processor was a concept device that while insanely amazing, has absolutely zero chance of making it to market. Sad, I know. But the chip is legit (hey, it’s late, it rhymed, and to my sleep deprived mind, sounded catchy) so carry on.

**Quick sidenote — that concept device…

two 3.7-inch WVGA displays, dual front cameras, a 12-megapixel camera on the back and an integrated 15-lumen DLP pico-projector, wifi, bluetooth, 3G, wired ethernet, hdmi, gps, motion sensors galore, and…Android.

The next wave of smartphones, tablet computers, and maybe even tiny (read: worthless) netbooks will have some pretty hefty bragging rights as far as I’m concerned. The OMAP4 is the next evolution of the current-gen OMPA3 (same chip that powers DROID and Pre and….) and features a new dual-core design. Ultimately more powerful, this new dual-core design doesn’t come without battery loving design. How’s 145 hours of audio out of a single 1,000mAh battery powered by a 1GHz dual-core smartphone type device? Ya, that’s awesome!

Other honorable mentions include the ability to easily display “much greater” than WVGA, capture 1080p video at 30fps, and even supporting 3 separate displays. I’ll give both kidneys and my firstborn child for a chance at a well designed and functional 3-display smartphone that hauls ass and sips battery juice. Oh yeah, I’ll fight you for it.

How many cups of drool have you gone through so far…?
