Recently, Qualcomm has announced the new MSM processors that will be coming out in Q4 of this year. MSM is the code name for Mobile Platform superseding the MSM platforms already on the market.
This is a very big deal considering that most mobile devices out there use the same operating system, which is Windows-based. It is not a huge surprise that they would port the OS over since many manufactures have done this before.
Of course, the question that most everyone has been, “What is the big deal?” What is the difference between the old processors and this new one? Well, that is a very good question.
It is almost like comparing apples and oranges. Sure, there are huge differences, but is that enough to make a huge difference in the current smartphone space?
For one, the new processor from Qualcomm is really much faster. This is the main selling point of these new devices, which is why they are so exciting. The chipset is clocked at up to 3.2 GHz, which is really fast.
Users should expect this, especially on devices running Android Kit Kat 4.4. There are some cases where the new chipsets are able to run on older operating systems such as Honeycomb and predecessors.
The new MSM chipsets from Qualcomm include support for the latest mobile standards, which includes Android L. With this in tow, any device from Qualcomm will be ready to go right out of the box. Since it is the company that supplies the Adreno chip for mobile phones, everything that they are doing will obviously be geared towards making their products better.
This is a plus for buyers since they do not have to worry about compatibility issues. Even though this is a benefit for buyers, the real question here is whether or not these devices will become successful with the existing mobile platform that they are already using.
When we look at the smartphone space, we see that there is a new announcement coming out almost every month. Sometimes, we see silicon makers making announcements about their upcoming products, but they rarely give much information.
This is not the case with Qualcomm. They made their new processor just for smartphone devices. In fact, the first devices that will be using this new technology are the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc and the LG Optimus Vu.
These two devices, along with the soon to be released Motorola Cliq, will mark the first steps into the world of mobile technology. We will also see a whole slew of new devices that will be coming out over the next couple of months. If you have a chance to invest in these new devices before the market gets saturated, you should definitely take advantage of it.
If you think that the announcements by Qualcomm is just for Android enthusiasts, then think again. They have other plans for the future. For example, they have a very exciting new technology called RealSense.
With this new technology, you will be able to access information in your hands even when you are not using your mobile phone. This will give you the ability to control almost everything in your home or office just by using your eyes.
This is only the beginning, though. We have only seen the tip of the iceberg. There will be tons more innovations from Qualcomm. Their partnership with Apple and HTC will definitely give us something interesting to look forward to on an everyday basis.
No matter what you use your device for, you can be sure that the company is working hard to create new and exciting devices for you to enjoy.
