It's also announced it has sampled the first versions of its dual-core Snapdragon chipsets, which integrate two of the company's enhanced cores running at up to 1.2GHz.

These solutions are third-generation chipsets designed for smartphones, tablets and smartbook devices and supporting 24-bit WXGA 1280 x 800 resolution displays.

Future Snapdragon dual-core CPUs will be rated at 1.5 GHz.
