We already know about NVIDIA's Kal-El project which will bring quad-core chips to phones and tablets beginning later this year, and now Qualcomm has stepped up its game as well, announcing plans for its own quad-core badassery.
I'm just going to get right to it: we could start seeing 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon processors powering devices sometime in early 2012. Not only that, but these new powerhouse chips will also be sporting Adreno Graphics, 3D, full 1080p, and LTE connectivity as a standard. I don't know about you, but I'll go ahead put a check in the 'impressed' box -- that is some serious silicon power, especially in the mobile space. With specs like this, we'll all be able to retire our laptops and work completely off of a tablet or smartphone with some sort of lapdock functionality.
