Qualcomm stays in the game with a new processor

Q_1CQualcomm is well known in the world of Windows Mobile for its powerful processor like the snapdragon on the HD2 and now also  the MSM7X30. This new processor has specifications that are very similar to the Snapdragons, but feature some small changes. The new processor is now 45nm instead of 65nm that the Snapdragon had, which gives it a size advantage and I bet faster and less power hungry.

Here are the new specifications, Which aren’t so new.

 •720p high-definition video encode/decode at 30 frames per second
•Integrated 2D and 3D graphics GPUs with support for OpenGL ES 2.0, and OpenVG 1.1 industry standard APIs
•Dedicated low-power audio subsystem supporting 5.1 surround
•12-megapixel camera support
•Integrated GPS for location-based services
•Support for leading mobile operating systems, including Android, Windows Mobile, Brew Mobile Platform and Symbian
•Support for package-on-package memory for reduced board space, optimized power consumption and more responsive performance

The MSM7×30 family of chipsets is supported by the PM8058(TM) power management integrated circuit and the QTR8600(TM) RF subsystem with integrated Bluetooth® and FM radio. MSM7×30 chipsets will directly interface with Qualcomm’s WCN1312(TM) WLAN solution for 802.11 b/g/n.

With the chips shrinking fast,  it seems like mobile phones just gets smaller and faster, and I can not wait to see what is new next year. I bet Qualcomm will be leading the way.
