Subject description: non-conventional players rally behind the new Qualcomm processor
 

The big problem about ARM in laptops - that there is no single mass-supported design - seems solved with the entry of Qualcomm and its Snapdragon processors:

View these example designs at the ongoing Computex (Taiwan).

Intel and MS are the two entities noticeably excluded from the Snapdragon products. Asus with its eee is still playing...

Interview with Qualcomm COO Dr. Sanjay Jha:

Quote:
We have a 1 GHz processor that runs at 500 mW. It is designed into 15 devices. Those devices are pocket-sized portable computers with 4-inch to 5-inch screens that will have a long battery life, broadband access and a fast processor that can surf the web and download attachments.

We see mCommerce, where you can pay for things using your mobile phone; location-based services; and downloading content as being up-and-coming services...

We will partner with providers, but want to provide an integrated platform on which to deliver those services.
