Tony Smith writes how that by the end of this year, 15 per cent of us will be using smartphones with multi-core processors.

“So says market watcher Strategy Analytics, which also reckons 45 per cent of the über-handsets will contain two or more processing cores come 2015. Right now, you can’t buy a multi-core smartphone. LG will release what is expected to be first, the Optimus 2x, running Android, over the coming months. It’s already on sale in Korea, and is due over here in March.”

HTC profits leaping and bounding up, Peter Chou promises tablet and production expansion
Vlad Savov recaps HTC’s fourth quarter financial results of 2010.

“HTC’s fourth quarter of 2010 has gone exactly the same way as the first three: the company reports a 160 per cent rise in profits (to $500 million) year-on-year and a 31 per cent increase relative to Q3 2010. Total revenue for the final three months of last year rounded the $3.5 billion mark, having been a trifling $1.4 billion the year before. Company CEO Peter Chou sees no end to this dramatic growth, forecasting it’ll remain in double digits through 2011, and he plans to match up to it by doubling monthly production capacity at HTC’s Shanghai plant to two million handsets.”
