The embattled chipmaker is making a huge push toward next-generation mobile devices. Their most promising offering, Snapdragon, made an appearance at CES 2008 Las Vegas. Stefan mentioned the multi-core, multi-featured processor family a little while ago, and it looks like Qualcomm is showing off it’s charm with a new reference design prototype.
Qualcomm’s “Fairbanks” design is a GPS-equipped handset with a 3 megapixel shooter, microSD card, TV tuner, and a Windows CE OS. The “Anchorage” device is a QWERTY slider with an amazing 1Ghz CPU and connectivity options out the wazoo. Did you read that? It’s powered by a 1Ghz processor! We don’t know what that means for this device’s production-hopes, but with that much power under the hood, we’d happily eat Ramen noodles for a month in order to buy one of those.
Bring it on, Qualcomm!
