Qualcomm is one of the launch partner for Microsoft in Windows Phone 7. Even though Microsoft has provided with minimum specs for WP7 from camera resolution to various sensors on board, one thing it recommends to its OEMâ€™s is the Qualcommâ€™s snapdragon 1GHz processor. 1GHz processor is the minimum requirement for WP7 OS, but it doesn’t need to be a QUALCOMM chip right? But the chip have been the defacto standard for all the WP7 devices. The real reason behind this may be the Qualcommâ€™s work on WP7 platform. The above video from Qualcomm explains the optimizations it done with WP7 platform and the device OEMâ€™s. So does it mean that there wont be WP7 devices powered by Nvidia Tegra or Samsung chips anytime soon ? What do you think ?
