Nvidia Corp. announced that Kyocera Corp. has chosen Nvidia's GoForce 4000 handheld GPU for its new CDMA EVDO phone, the W41K.

The W41K phone features a 3.17Megapixel camera, a QVGA resolution main display with up to 262K colors, and an OLED subdisplay. Nvidia's 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 W41K is another trend-setting design from Kyocera that aligns very well with our strategy to deliver high-performance multimedia features to the world's most exciting and sought after 3G devices," said Michael Rayfield, general manager for handheld GPUs at Nvidia.

A key component of the GoForce 4000 GPU is Nvidia's 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 GoForce 4000 GPU delivers the high-quality multimedia features that Kyocera demanded for this handset and does so at power levels that will help the customer enjoy these features for longer," added Rayfield.
