Qualcomm is sampling several new versions of its second-generation Snapdragon, broadening the family beyond the initial QSD8650A that sampled early this year. Like that product, the new mobile processors are built in 45nm technology and combine the company’s Scorpion CPU with a cellular baseband. The newest model, the MSM8660, sports two CPUs running at 1.2GHz. Later this year, the company plans to sample an even faster product intended for tablets and netbooks.
