    Qualcomm's Snapdragon

    This is nicer then the flower!
    We sat down with one of Qualcomm's fancy new reference designs today, the Anchorage QWERTY slider phone. Let's be perfectly clear -- the Inventec-crafted device won't ever see the light of day in this exact form, Qualcomm just needed some eye candy with which to demonstrate its new Snapdragon platform. The chipset features a highly specialized and customized ARM-based core and graphics from ATI -- both actually licensed this time around, we're told -- and tries to take advantage of as many technologies that Snapdragon offers as possible: MediaFLO support, blazing clock speeds (1GHz to be exact), high resolutions (SVGA here), and the list goes on. Snapdragon-powered devices should hit retail from HTC and Samsung by the end of the year. Click on for pics, just don't get too attached since this is as close as you'll ever get to it, alright?

    haven't looked at the pictures, but the tech sounds DEEE-licious. Now if they can put it into a touch-screen device the size of oh, say, the SMT-5800 I'm sold.

    Oh, wait a minute...you didn't say what 3/4G radios it has. Gobi (EVDO/HSPA)chipset? That would pretty much clinch it for tech until LTE comes out.

    dima, also consider the Nvidia APX 2500 chip. I will bump it to first page for you. It was my post. Thanks, JASTECH

    Update

    Availability

    The QSD8250 and QSD8650 are already shipping to handset-makers worldwide, according to Qualcomm. In particular, they are being adopted by Taiwanese ODM (original design manufacturer) HTC, whose CEO, Peter Chou, stated, "We are happy to be working together with Qualcomm on this groundbreaking new Snapdragon solution, which will bring a new era of fully featured, customizable user experiences to consumers around the world."
