  1. Qualcomm today announced its first dual-core Snapdragon processors, which should bring a significant upgrade to the existing 1GHz single-core part found in such devices as the Nexus One, Droid Incredible, and Evo 4G smartphones, HP's Compaq Airlife 100 and Lenovo's Skylight smartbooks, as well as Dell's Streak 5 five-inch tablet.

  2. This new dual core is slower than the QSD8672 dual-core, which supposedly boasts 1.5GHz in each core. So how come they are announcing a slower model like it's the big thing?

    The 1.5GHz chip is also recognized in the company's press release (first link in the article).

    I'm amazed at how fast smart-phones (and similar devices) are evolving. Hopefully, by 2015 they will be more powerful than current generation laptops or close to that.
    But i'm still waiting for paper like devices to appear on the market. Those are the future. (and halo's)
