Qualcomm Technologies, Facebook team-up to “enhance performance” of Facebook Home and Facebook for Android on Snapdragon-powered devices

Qualcomm’s wholly-owned subsidiary Qualcomm Technologies has been working with Facebook to optimize Facebook Home and Facebook for Android across all Qualcomm Snapdragon processors. According to Qualcomm’s press release, these optimizations are designed to enable better overall performance, lower power consumption and improved data efficiency for consumers using Facebook Home and Facebook for Android.

In that sense, the collaboration between the two companies involved systems-level performance enhancements related to key Snapdragon processor technologies including GPU, CPU and 3G/4G modem. The end result is a performance optimized solution that delivers a “great Facebook experience while minimizing power and improving data efficiency.”

Sounds cool and I’m wondering what will other chip makers make of it. Will they also jump in bed with the social network to make Facebook running on other smartphones (those not using Qualcomm processors) equally great. We’ll see and in the meantime, I’m sure that the two companies will find way to make Facebook “properly” work on lower-end phones, not just the likes of HTC First, HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4…
