Qualcomm announces new RF chips for thinner, more-powerful devices

Qualcomm today has announced the RF360 Front End Solution, which they claim "enables for the first time a single, global 4G LTE design for mobile devices." The RF360 is actually a family of RF chips designed to eliminate the problem of band fragmentation while also improving RF performance -- killing two birds with one stone. In turn, this helps phone makers manufacturer mobile devices that support all the major bands more easily than before. Plus, it'll make future mobile devices thinner and more powerful.

Qualcomm Snapdragon Voice Activation revealed with “always-on” action

This week Qualcomm has upped the ante with a selection of features for their next-generation chipsets for mobile devices.

Qualcomm asks: sled dogs or the bus today, ma’am?

Qualcomm asks: sled dogs or the bus today, ma’am?

The folks at Qualcomm have released a video showing a rather odd bus stop. This bus stop was embedded with a set of posters that asked users waiting for a ride to head to a webpage, from there asking them if they're bored, in a hurry, or otherwise in need of some general entertainment. What happened was no less than magical - if not completely off topic and wonderful - off topic if you count the HTC One release today as Qualcomm's biggest release, that is.

Samsung and Chillingo bring “100% Indie” gaming portal to battle NVIDIA

Samsung and Chillingo bring “100% Indie” gaming portal to battle NVIDIA

It would seem that Samsung is attempting to get in on the underground vibe with their newest team-up with the gaming group known as Chillingo in an effort they're calling "100% Indie." This portal will be a means for up-and-coming developers to reach mobile gamers with a big brand umbrella that pushes games through the Samsung Apps store for Android devices. In other words, this is an effort to get games in Samsung's own store, an effort that will also promote said games and, in turn, support the developers behind those games.

Samsung and Apple one-brand manufacturing puts competition on notice

Samsung and Apple one-brand manufacturing puts competition on notice

This week it's been made clear - or perhaps just clearer than ever before - that a company able to manufacture its own device components is a company that will thrive. According to the readouts from Gartner showing 2012's top consumers in the semiconductor universe specifically, Samsung and Apple are out in front of the pack - by a significant margin. Semiconductors, mobile processors, and hardware from displays to memory cards are all a part of this puzzle, and as the two next entries on that list show with double-digit percentage drops show, it's not just Apple and Samsung that are floating upward here coming into 2013, it's mobile smart devices as a whole (and all their little bits and pieces).

Qualcomm EVP Murthy Renduchintala waxes futuristic in the Personal Media Hub

Qualcomm EVP Murthy Renduchintala waxes futuristic in the Personal Media Hub

This week we got the opportunity to have a chat with Qualcomm's EVP Murthy Renduchintala who made it clear that the company's future isn't just in making high-efficiency next-level processing power SoCs, but to make the smartphone (or smart device) the center of your world definitively. Speaking about how as Qualcomm aims to keep the entire mobile processor experience both high efficiency and high power, Renduchintala made the case for the company's foresight for a world where it's no longer a case-by-case basis in which you share and interact with the media you associate with, it's more of a management situation. You won't even think about it all, you'll just do it.
