Qualcomm has issued a press release revealing they have started shipping their new dual-core Snapdragon chipsets. These chipsets run each core at up to 1.2GHz, include a GPU which supports 2D/3D acceleration engines for Open GLES 2.0 and Open VG 1.1, 1080p video encode/decode, dedicated low-power audio engine, integrated low power GPS, and support for 24-bit WXGA 1280x800 resolution displays. These chipsets come in two variants, the MSM8260 for HSPA+ and the MSM8660 for multi-mode HSPA+/CDMA2000 1xEV-DO Rev B. The press release also lists QSD8672 as a third-gen chipset like the two mentioned, but doesn't go into any detail of what its role is. With this announcement that they are shipping, how long until HTC makes a super smart phone?

There's going to be some really cool Android phones coming out with this chipset in the next 3-6 months.

WOOT! I'm a early adopter of the Android platform, I picked up my G1 back on launch day in 2008. The phone had Android 1.0 on it when I pulled it out of the box!

Today I'm still rocking that G1 but it's really showing it's age. I've rooted it and am running eclair but it seems to take every bit of power this little handset has to run it successfully.


I'm locked in with T-mobile till October and I'm counting the days till I can jump carriers and get a new handset, maybe I'll be one of the first to get a dual-core phone!
