Nvidia demos 'Quark' iPhone-like device

Nvidia has demonstrated the Quark, a new smartphone resembling Apple's iPhone with its three-inch touch-screen interface and a single power/hold button. The phone is particularly focused on media playback with the ability to play music, display photos, and play videos in a graphically rich environment. A three-megapixel camera complements audio and 802.11b/g/i/e wireless capability. The Quark runs on Nvidia's recent GoForce 6100 chipset, combining CPU and GPU functions with the audio and wireless functions. Nvidia says the phone is unlikely to make it into production, but notes that the technology is already in third-party products.
