PC Mag reports that Qualcomm- a sample Google Android handset played an OpenGL version of Quake in 3D at this year’s CTIA. The phone was based on a 400+ Mhz MSM7201 chip set with the latest build of Android that was connected to AT&T’s UMTS network, and had new icons and applications, including significant changes to its internet browser. The report also stated that the game was running smooth with good frame rates.
AT&T Mobilty CEO Ralph de la Vega said, “We in fact will be able to take the Android open-source code and put our own apps and features on an Android device. They’re going to open it up and allow us to be able to customize what an Android device looks like to our customers.”
