Kyocera Corporation has selected the NVIDIA GoForce 4000 handheld graphics processing unit (GPU) for its new CDMA EV-DO phone, the W41K.
The W41K combines a sleek and stylish design with a host of multimedia features including a 3.17 megapixel camera, a QVGA resolution main display with up to 262K colors, and an organic light emitting diode (OLED) subdisplay.
The GoForce 4000 GPU provides hardware acceleration for fluid 15fps camera preview, full-resolution JPEG compression and decompression, 2D graphics, and display controller support for both of the system's displays.
A key component of the NVIDIA GoForce 4000 GPU is NVIDIA nPower technology, a combination of architecture and design methodologies that delivers advanced power saving techniques and dedicated algorithms for great features and performance with minimal battery drain.
The Kyocera W41K went on sale in Japan in early March and is available on the AU/KDDI network.
