Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chips are already a popular choice for smartphone and tablet makers. But Qualcomm says the 125 devices that have already been announced are just the tip of the iceberg. About 250 new devices with Snapdragon chips are currently in development.
The announcement came out of this week’s Qualcomm Uplinq event, where the company is clearly busy tooting its own horn. But that’s still an awful lot of design wins for a company that didn’t have much name recognition a few years ago.
Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon processors are in top tier products such as the HTC Flyer tablet, the upcoming HP TouchPad, and the Sony Experia Play smartphone. It’s next-gen chips are also expected to be able to handle devices running the Windows 8 operating system as well as Linux, Android, webOS, and other platforms.
