Qualcomm has some very good chips and processors for the mobile device market and many of the most popular smartphones and tablets run Qualcomm chips inside. Qualcomm’s CEO Paul Jacobs has announced that 250 more devices using the Snapdragon chip are in the works. That number is in addition to the 125 products that have already been announced using the Snapdragon.
Qualcomm is pushing the Snapdragon chip hard as a way to extend its reach beyond radio chips that it is known for. The company sells the license to a lot of the tech that is required to operate a 3G device. The surge of smartphones is pushing the demand for all sorts of chips and processors and Snapdragon is along for the ride.
Jacobs doesn’t offer any hint at what sort of new devices will be using the Snapdragon or when the new devices will land. The new products will likely include a bunch of smartphones and tablets in the mix. Jacobs said, “Mobile is now the dominant computing platform, and it’s never going back. Computing has changed forever.”
