Funky Android Illustrates 3D Gaming, Video Conferencing, Skype with TI OMAP 4


We stopped by the Texas Instruments booth after they announced some pretty awesome integrations of their TI OMAP 4 dual-core processor, the exact chip used to power the LG Optimus 3D, and their partners had some pretty cool apps to show off. Leveraging the chipset, we saw an awesome 3D Gaming integration, effective video conferencing solution, and Skype – all running on a rather funkdified piece of hardware running Android 2.2.

The 3D Gaming was pretty exceptional in concept. The game itself was pretty basic and seemed to lack direction and polish, but it really shows you what is possible. The Phandroid Team could benefit from the video conferencing solutions and we were happy to hear the company behind them will be offering an API/SDK for 3rd party development.

And Skype…

I’m pretty excited about what these new processors and chipsets will enable on mobile devices and this is just a glimpse of what’s to come. Unfortunately the 3D doesn’t jump out at you by watching my video, but testing it out for the first time I think it’ll put a smile on your face. At least… that’s what happened when I first played with the LG Optimus 3D which is powered by the TI OMAP 4.

  1. Hey looks like the commenting system is working again, nice.

  2. Wonderful, awe-insipring, fantastic and 20 other adjectives. The question in my mind is: Does the TI-OMAP 4 have those stupid f#$%ing e-fuses as “an added feature”? If so, they can keep it.

  3. TI really used 20 year old hardware to display their newest chip? What, LG wouldn’t let them borrow a few tabs?

  4. @DJ: It’s up to the OEM to implement E-Fuse. TI just provides the capability.

  5. Lol it looks like their graphing calculators.

  6. “This video contains content from Phandroid, who has blocked it on copyright grounds”


  7. The video is blocked. Is this a phone or calculator?…

  8. @chaos, It sure is up to the OEM, what I meant by that was hoping any stupid-ass e-fuse abilities would be nipped in the bud by TI never adding them in the first place. Of course, that would be a stupid business practice by limiting options available to the primary customers, it doesn’t mean I have to like it though. Fortunately, I’ve never blown one, but I hate knowing that they’re even there.

  9. @ccrows It is a phone which will never be available for mass production. The sole purpose is for OEMs to test out the processor.

  10. ^ Gotcha Thanks… :)

  11. This is failure… Give me OMAP 5..

  12. cool stuff!
