Nvidia has introduced the APX 2500 applications processor which enables Windows Mobile phones with 3D user interfaces and high-definition video. The APX 2500 delivers 10 hours of 720p HD playback, as well as HD camcorder and ultra-high-resolution photo imaging capabilities, the company highlighted.

Nvidia claims the APX 2500 boasts the industry's first HD (720p) playback and capture capability for handheld devices. The chip features an ultra-low-power GeForce core that is OpenGL ES 2.0 and Microsoft Direct3D Mobile compliant, and Nvidia nPower technology, enabling over 10 hours of high-definition video playback and up to 100 hours of audio.
