Motorola has confirmed that it plans to release a 2GHz smartphone by the end of 2010.
IT news site Conceivably Tech reported that Sanjay Jha, the CEO of Motorola's consumer business and mobile devices division, announced to the Executives Club of Chicago that the company planned to release the new smartphone by the end of this year.
The Android-based smartphone is expected to contain a number of cutting-edge features including a gyroscope, Nvidia Tegra-based graphics processor and flash 10.1 hardware acceleration.
As yet, no chip-makers has announced a mobile phone processor that boasts a clock speed of 2GHz. Most smartphones currently use Qualcomm's 1GHz Snapdragon processor. These include Google Nexus One and HTC's Evo and Incredible. The Apple iPhone uses its own proprietary 1GHz A4 processor.
If Motorola succeeds in bringing this technology to the market, it will be the first manufacturer to effectively double the speed of smartphones in just a year.
