‘Qualcomm sure are going full steam in their mobile CPU research and development division. If you thought that 1.2GHz dual core CPU’s were going to make your phone fast, wait until you can get your hands on the latest Qualcomm 1.5GHz dual core chip, which will no doubt be utilised in an abundance of HTC mobile phones before the year is out.
Scheduled for a Q4 2010 release, smartphone and tablet fans are sure to get a kick out of this one. The Q4 release is looking pretty perfect for that webOS tablet of HP’s by Q1 2011 as well, so keep an eye out for that one!
The question remains, however, do we really need 1.5GHz dual core processors driving our phones? From a common sense point of view, the answer is most probably no at this point in time given more than capable smartphones such as the HTC Desire.’
This obviously seems like a step in the right direction for Qualcomm as us mobile phone users want our iPhones, Blackberries and other devices as fast as possibly so reliability is imperative – the only thing which may need to be worked on is getting the battery to actually retain a decent charge and not giving up at the first sight of two applications being open at the same time.
What I am looking forward to the most is what smart phones, tablets and other tech is going to be out there for us thanks to Qualcomm. Hopefully late 2010 and early 2011 something will be pulled out of the wilderness and then have its time to shine.
Does this news put you off possibly purchasing a new smart phone as something newer may be out next quarter? What about the iPad? – About to purchase one of those? What happens if Apple snap up some Qualcomm products and produce a new smaller and more compact version of the iPad?
