NVIDIA isn’t the only company with a new mobile chip to sell. Marvell is introducing a new quad-core chip designed for use in smartphones and tablets around the globe.

The Marvell PXA1088 is an ARM Cortex-A7 quad-core chip with support for global HSPA+ networks.

The PXA1088 is a single-chip solution with integrated WiFi, Bluetooth, and FM, and the chip is pin-to-pin compatible with earlier chips from Marvell, which should make it easy for device makers to switch to the new processor.

Among other things, the processor can handle 1080p HD video decoding and encoding and OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics.

Marvell plans to show off the new chip at Mobile World Congress in Spain this month, and predicts that phones and tablets using the new processor could hit the streets later this year.
