Qualcomm plans to ship its next generation Snapdragon smartphone processors during the fourth quarter of this year, according to IDG News Service. Qualcomm's new dual core chips, dubbed the QSD8672, sport a 1.5GHz clockspeed. That's 500MHz faster than the popular Snapdragon processor in some of today's hottest smartphones, including the Nexus One and HTC EVO 4G. Qualcomm's vice president of product management, Mark Frankel, thinks some manufacturers could even have smartphones running the new chip on store shelves by Christmas.source: IDG News Service
