HTC announcing quad-core phones at Mobile World Congress in February, not CES?

I'm writing this post on a 2010 13-inch MacBook Pro. It's got a dual-core processor, clocked at 2.4GHz, along with an integrated NVIDIA GPU. It gets the job done, but I'm starting to feel a little bit of buyer's remorse since many of today's phones are now creeping awfully close to the power that my Mac has. 

HTC will be releasing the first quad-core phones this year, but unfortunately, we'll have to wait a little longer for the announcements. The Taiwanese phone manufacturer has allegedly decided to keep its high-performance handsets under wraps for about another month and unveil the lineup at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. 

It shouldn't be a huge surprise, as these devices were originally slated for release sometime in Q2 of this year. And, honestly, I don't blame HTC for taking a little extra time for the release of these phones; CES is focused on a much more diverse set of electronics, and MWC (Mobile World Congress) is dedicated to just mobile tech. Plus, the extra time gives HTC a chance to tweak battery life and performance to be the perfect ratio to make the most people happy.
