We've just found out that Snap Dragon is the new platform designed by Qualcomm. Well, strictly speaking, it's more like a new "concept." Some feature about Snap Dragon are 1. An easy to use UI. We're not sure if there's going to be an UI based on Windows, but most of the machines displayed are based on Linux. 2. Connectivity via 3G or HSDPA. 3. The machines have less than 20mm of thickness. 4. Weigh less than 2lb or 900g. 5. Battery life will be longer than 8 hrs.
Snap Dragon is based the ARM design and this avoids conflicting with Intel. If it's x86, it's called "Gobi." Whatever the name might be, Qualcomm call these extremely mobile laptops "Smart book." This has reminded us of Android. We wonder if there's possibility for collaboration between the two. However, Luis Pineda, Vice President of Qualcomm, did not comment on this at all.
