TechRadar reports that Qualcomm are working closely with Nokia to produce the roadmap – several devices across several launches.
When questioned about the consumer demand for dual-core, Enrico Salvatori, president of Qualcomm CDMA technologies in Europe said that the 1.4GHz single core (Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255) Nokia Lumia 800 was just the beginning, i.e. more powerful hardware to come?
“We are working on a roadmap [with Nokia] and not a single device, a single launch. It’s an important collaboration for Qualcomm, so we are very excited about working together. It’s been very effective in terms of time to market because we developed the phone together. It’s been a very successful development”
Salvatori noted the big achievement by Nokia and Qualcomm to get the Nokia Lumia handsets to the market within 6 months. Considering how long Nokia usually takes, it comparison it seems in the past 6 months Nokia has been travelling at light-speed.
Salvatori added that it was a big achievement for both the Nokia and Qualcomm teams to bring the devices to market inside six months.
TechRadar notes that Qualcomm has been speaking recently about their own roadmap, specifically QUADCORE 28nm Snapdragon S4, clock speeds up to a blazing 2.5GHz along with a new Adreno graphics processor.
Well, it would be nice if Nokia made a jump to Quadcore, no? One of the things with come backs, you have to make a stunning entrance and wow the audience. Nokia can’t afford to be delivering last year’s hardware (even though the OS may not need it) for the simple fact that these numbers are slowly becoming part of the marketing game, and thus the added desirability factor.
