Qualcomm looks set to dive into the tablet business with plenty of enthusiasm after leaking out the Topaz tablet specifications, where it is tipped to be powered by a dual-core Snapdragon MSM8660 processor. This processor is tipped to see action in other tablets as well, with Qualcomm informing investors that “we currently have more than 150 Snapdragon devices in development, including more than 20 tablets.” For those who are curious, the MSM8660 is no slouch when it comes to performance, where it can support both HSPA+ and EVDO Rev B, although LTE devices will most probably need the MSM8960. Will we see the similar chip power future webOS phones? Perhaps, or perhaps not, but we do know that Qualcomm has us on an interesting ride this year.
