COD2 for Pocket PCs is expected to be released this November. Call of Duty 2 for Pocket PCs and handheld devices is optimized for Intel Corporationšs newest processor family for portable devices (codenamed Monahans) based on third-generation Intel XScaleŽ architecture. Activision's Call of Duty 2 is an award-winning, intense and cinematic first-person action game that transports gamers to the front lines of World War II. With exceptional AI that fights, evades and acts realistically, chaotic battlegrounds with exploding artillery and whizzing bullets, authentic battleground recreation, a vast arsenal of weaponry, and a highly polished gameplay progression, the excitement of the original PC version has been optimized and transported to handhelds."</i><br /><br /><img src="http://www.pocketpcthoughts.com/images/web/2003/call-of-duty2-pocketpc-smartphone-jason.jpg" alt="User submitted image" title="User submitted image"/><br /><br />I saw a screenshot of this game at Mobius Thailand 2006, but I wasn't expecting to see official release information quite so soon. The specifications for the game are interesting:<br /><br />Software Version: Any Pocket PC or Smartphone with 28mb of free RAM (300 MHz Intel XScaleŽ processor, SD Card with 32mb)<br /><br />Hardware accelerated version: Any Pocket PC or Smartphone with the Intel 2700G or Nvidia GoForce 5500 graphics chip (300 MHz Intel XScaleŽ processor, SD Card with 32mb free, 28mb of free RAM)<br /><br />Definitely not for underpowered devices: most Smartphone owners will have to skip it (except for you Q owners). There's no mention of VGA or QVGA versions, but the screenshots are in VGA, so I'm assuming it means a full-on VGA version as an option. Interesting stuff - but I have to wonder how much pickup there will be for a product like this. I'm not aware of any device shipping that uses the GoForce 5500, and the devices using the Intel 2700G are few and far between. The software version is more compatible, though I wonder what the quality of the graphics will be like. Guess we'll have to wait until November!

Wow that looks great.

It's not just the Q with 300Mhz, some of the Samsung's also have a 300MHz processor. Unfortunately, none of the HTC devices do. :?
