Qualcomm Beast Mode Tablet SoC!

Recommended Posts

So if you have $1300 you can get this development tablet that blows everything possible out of the water.

APQ8064 chip on board.....

 

 

check some benchmarks out...

Quadrant
AnTuTu

S4 Pro MDP (APQ8064) 7,698
13,826

Nexus 7 (Tegra 3) 3,501
8,995

Galaxy S III (Exynos 4412) 4,454
11,960

One X (Tegra 3) 4,906
11,030

Galaxy S III (AT&T, MSM8960) 5,084
6,713

One X (AT&T, MSM8960) 4,784
6,956

 

 

 

 

*note im kinda lost as to why some of the screenshots mention the MSM8960 SoC in the build/product name and stuff when its evident by everything else the APQ chip is the one in the device not the MSM...would think if the MSM was in there then the PR would of mentioned it too at least...so guessing thats just a mistake or way they went about naming it for whatever reason...

 

 

regardless im stoked to see the MSM variant of this by the time the next EVO comes out!!....have to keep in mind though that Qualcom is still the only one using 28nm so it will be interesting to see what the others show when they get down to that process level...

Reportedly, the screen is only 720p, and the body is chunky. For a consumer, the tablet would not be worth even half the $1300 developers' cost.

didn't even look at the thickness...or if it had expandable memory which id doubt...

 

more excited about getting that gpu and quad tech into an MSM SoC....their dev tablets are always nuts though with the things they toss on...ie the 13MP camera and 7mics lol

It does take microSD and supports USB OTG...

      CDMA is leaps and bounds better then GSM...
       
      And LTE was built upon GSM...
       
      And WiMAX is a little something different.
       
      What did Qualcomm have as their 4G initiative? Was it better then LTE/WiMAX?
       
      Was Qualcomm involved in either LTE/WiMAX development? Any CDMA goodness within either?

      Via TUAW's article on Apple's relationship (or lack thereof) with China Mobile:
       
       
      We'll know for sure in 26 days, but it's fun to think about the iPhone 5S/5C being true global smartphones, capable of running on multiple bands -- and especially fun to think about the possibility of a tri-band device for us to play with on the new Sprint Network.

      Nothing really new here, but I like reading his blog articles and analysis about the wireless industy worldwide. Pretty cool to see your articles getting more coverage. More proof S4GRU is the premier source for Sprint news and analysis.

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Thursday, March 29, 2012 - 12:47 PM MDT
       
      When Apple first released the iPhone in 2007, they introduced a technological renaissance. The iPhone ushered in the “smartphone era” bringing phone technology to an entirely new level. Since the iPhone release, the iPhone has seen some technological advancement along the way, but not to the degree of changing the industry.
       
      The next iPhone is not only expected to introduce LTE capability to the line, but it may also be a true world phone, connecting to nearly every network technology. There could potentially be a single iPhone model that could be activated on nearly any carrier with the swap of a SIM card. Many carriers will undoubtedly impose a SIM lock, to keep the phone on their carrier, but it has the potential.
       
      Many technologies, one tiny chip
       
      At the heart of this advancement is the Qualcomm MDM9615 from Qualcomm’s GOBI line. This multiple device modem (MDM) chip supports both voice and data over LTE (FDD and TDD)as well as connecting to EV-DO Rev A and B, HSPA+, dual carrier HSPA+, and TD-SCDMA. With the added support of voice over LTE this phone could also be one of the first to support VoLTE.

       




      All this in the tiny iPhone form factor
       
      The MDM9615 will pair with Qualcomm’s WTR1605 and PM8018 integrated circuits to combine multiple mode and multiple band connectivity, low power consumption, and small footprint. The WTR1605 is Qualcomm’s first wafer level radio transceiver and will allow LTE FDD, LTE TDD, CDMA, WCDMA, TD-SCDMA and GSM connections. The PM8018 will provide efficient power management at the wafer level. The only sticking point for Apple is how to fit all the antennas, PA's and filters for all the different bands into the iPhone without significantly increasing the size. This may keep them from being able to introduce a “world” phone and have to settle for regional or carrier specific models with the components to support the bands the carriers use.
       
      But will it retain Apple’s iconic battery life?[float right][/float]
       
       
      First generation LTE chips are energy hogs, which may be why Apple opted to skip the addition of LTE to their iPhone 4S. The 28nm MDM9615 may be just what Apple was waiting for in order to retain their small form factor and still give outstanding battery life. Not only will the 28nm chip have a reduction in size, but when paired with Qualcomm’s Power Optimized Envelope Tracking (Q-POET) the chip will see further enhanced power efficiency and heat management.
       
      What we know
       
      As of this point, Apple is only reviewing potential components for their next iPhone, but the fact that they are reviewing these specific components leads many to believe that they will utilize the components to their maximum potential. Apple generally is leak proof, which means that we will have to wait until an official announcement until we have confirmation of what will be included in the newest installation of their iPhone line. The combination of these chips may not even see the Apple device first. An Android OEM may be already working on this and introduce a phone with the wide capabilities possible with this chipset.
