The Benq P30 will run Symbian UIQ, the OS already used by Sony Ericsson P800 and Motorola A920. TI's OMAP processors will power the phone, which should be released in the fourth quarter of 2003.
TI's OMAP1510 processor provides mobile users with enhanced applications performance, enabling the BenQ P30 to deliver a variety of high-performance applications, such as video, still camera, MP3 player and games to consumers without compromising battery life. Furthermore, the OMAP1510 processor supplies BenQ's smartphone with the processing muscle needed to power the device's high-level OS and extensive multimedia features.
BenQ's P30 handset also includes GSM/GPRS digital and analog basebands from TI's TCS2100 chipset. TI's high performance TBB2100 dual-core digital baseband leverages an innovative power split technique to provide manufacturers like BenQ with unmatched standby time and power-off consumption, while TI's highly integrated TWL3014 analog baseband integrates power management functions for reduced board-space requirements, chip count and development cost.
