rrossman2 writes “Qualcomm has released 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 1280×800 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?”
