Motorola confirms 2GHz smartphone by Christmas

Sanjay Jha, CEO of Motorola’s consumer business and mobile devices division, has confirmed his outfit will be releasing a  2GHz smartphone by Christmas.

Talking to the Executives Club of Chicago, Jha said that he believed that most corporate workstations would be replaced by smartphones in two years.

As proof he said that Motorola will have a 2GHz ‘superphone’ ready for the holidays.  

The phone will be Android and will have a gyroscope, and a  Nvidia Tegra-based graphics processor with full Flash 10.1 hardware acceleration.  It is not clear how Motorola will get the chip to 2GHz.

Qualcomm announced faster Snapdragon processors that would reach 1.5GHz at Coputex last week.   It might be something from Nvidia which has been telling the world+dog that its Tegra 2 is pretty fast.
