NVIDIA announced on Thursday the new W41K CDMA EVDO phone from Kyocera will support the NVIDIA GoForce 4000 handheld graphics processing unit (GPU).
The W41K combines 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. The NVIDIA GoForce 4000 GPU is empowered by NVIDIA's nPower technology.
The Kyocera W41K went on sale in Japan in early March and is available on the AU/KDDI network. NVIDIA GoForce handheld GPUs can also be found in mobile phones and handheld devices from Motorola, Sony Ericsson, Samsung, LG, Mitsubishi, Mitac, and DBTEL.
