Broadcom announced today that it would be demonstrating a complete mobile phone reference design at MWC 2009 that uses the Google Android operating system. The reference design has some impressive features like 720p HD camcorder, HDMI output, and up to 12MP camera resolutions.

The reference design can support all popular multimedia formats and can play any video on the phone despite the source resolution of the device. The device also uses Broadcom's BCM2153 HEDGE 3G multimedia processor, the BCM2727 mobile multimedia processor, BCM4325 Bluetooth/Wi-Fi combo chip, BCM4750 AGPS receiver, the BCM2940 mobile TV receiver, and the BCM59035 power management unit.

The design supports 3G HSDPA communications, DVB-H and DVB-T mobile TV standards, extended battery life, 3D gaming, H.264 720p video recording at 30fps and advanced in-camera image processing. The platform sounds like a fully featured Android device for sure.
