"The "PG86100" certainly identifies itself as carrying a speedy new Adreno 220 GPU, which is typically paired with twin processing units, and should help push plenty of pixels to the 960 x 540 screen that's presently displaying Android Gingerbread 2.3.2."
This has the potential to be a great phone! If you're on Sprint and waiting for one that's really high end keep your eyes open for the Shooter! It's already running Gingerbread so that's a good start. Also, HTC does have a good track record of updating their high end phones. Last year I didn't like HTC phones because they had a relatively weak GPU. That's not the case anymore. The Adreno 220 should be right up there with the Tegra 2 and it may be faster. It's als designed to be paired with a dual-core CPU so we can expect that. And what good is a crazy fast GPU with a screen from last year? This has a qHD display!!! I'm so glad to see HTC going with a 16x9 aspect ratio and significantly a higher resolution as Motorola has started with the Atrix. If you're ready to get a new phone on Sprint and renew your contract you may want to hold out a little longer! If this is the phone you've been waiting for, or not, we would love to hear your thoughts!
