Qualcomm shipping 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon

The 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8260 and MSM8660 Snapdragon chips support 1080p video and get 3D/2D engines for Open GLES 2.0 and Open VG 1.1 acceleration.

Other features include a dedicated low power audio engine, integrated low power GPS, and support for 24-bit WXGA 1280 x 800 resolution displays. Both are sampling to manufacturers right now, which is likely to mean that smartphones and potentially smartbooks using the new chips may arrive before the year is out.
