Terms like 'dual core processor' and '3X speed' are being thrown around.
Dug from Open GL 1.1 benchmark results, Alien Babel spotted an upcoming phone from HTC that seems to put all others to shame. The phone is codenamed 'Glacier' (sarcastically?) and it looks like the person doing the testing has been traced back to T-Mobile in Washington.
They believe the new device uses Qualcomm's upcoming 1.2-1.5GHz dual core Snapdragon processors based on the CPU tests. Those tests show that the Glacier has 3x the processor performance of HTC's current speed champ, the EVO 4G.
It is interesting to note that in most of the tests, Samsung's Galaxy S product (T-Mobile Vibrant) scored very close to the new speed champ. Samsung uses its own Hummingbird ARM processors.
Motorola (MOT), HTC's biggest Android competitor, earlier announced plans to release a 2GHz Android phone by Christmas which would seem to be in the same 'speed demon' class. Motorola tends to use the OMAP line of ARM processors from Texas Instruments (TXN) for its high end Android phones.
[UPDATE: On Monday, Nov. 10, nearly a month later, Apple released Mac OS X 10.6.2, an extensive update that fixed the guest-account bug and more than three dozen other Snow Leopard problems. For a full list, see here.]

Android lands at T-Mobile Tuesday, and as part of the effort to deliver the Google phone to the mobile market, T-Mobile is considering including free e-mail access.
The new Android-powered phone will have Google's (GOOG) Gmail service built in, and T-Mobile executives are considering offering access to Gmail free, without the need for a data plan, says one person close to the discussions.
The HTC-manufactured T-Mobile phone will be the first of the hotly-anticipated Android-operated handsets, and one MOREsmoritz - Sep 22, 2008 3:05 PM ET

Microsoft's Silicon Valley shopping spree continues with its purchase Monday of Danger, a Palo-Alto based company that makes the technology behind the youth-centric Sidekick phone, popularized by Paris Hilton and other celebrities.
Like its bid to buy Yahoo (YHOO) -- which turned down the tech giant's $44.6 billion buyout offer Monday -- acquiring Danger is yet another move to compete against Google (GOOG), which is making a big push MOREMichal Lev-Ram, writer - Feb 11, 2008 2:58 PM ET
