ARM is offering 1.2GHz Snapdragon with its Dual Core CPU onslaught

The processors that are primarily considered to be lowest in Intel Mobile essentially are those that utilize the optimum architecture of Atom and can provide 0.65W that highly corresponds to 800 MHz Silver throne, Atom Z series. In the meantime, it is proved that processors of ARM are effectively found to be typically utilizing below half watt power consumption.

Are you as an interested user still wondering why ARM has stomped on the architecture of x86?  The natural benefit in holding certain advantages of power efficiency preferably in the segments of mobiles has inevitably enforced ARM to sit back and wonder whether they are compete in the most efficient segment that is the computing power sensitive notebooks and notebooks alone.

Exploring the two most optimum MSM’s of Qualcomm

Qualcomm, the giant worldwide who is considered to be one of the biggest organizations effectively holding licensees of ARM has grandly unveiled its two amazing Mobile Station Modem’s namely  MSM8260 and MSM8660 Snapdragon chipsets which are basically of the marvelous 3rd generation. These are undoubtedly availing the incomparable option of dual-core ARM CPUs clocked at up to an unbelievable level of 1.2 GHz.

The MSM8260 is highly found to be supporting HSPA+ which is a novel and fast accelerating 3.5G technology of the present era and that has effectively deployed not only by AT & T but also T-Mobile. However, the MSM 8660 has found to be supporting both; HSPA+ and the rival 1xEV-DO Rev. B tech, which is also a 3.5 technology that is utilized efficiently by the two topmost organizations namely Verizon and Sprint during their 4G transition period.

The support that is availed for such advantages standards greatly prevailed in technology clearly integrates the route of the making of high speed next generation devices popularly known as namely smart phones.

The most incorporated features of these incredible chipsets; MSM8260 and MSM8660

• 1 GPS

• GPU with 2D/3D acceleration engines optimally for Open GL ES 2.0 and Open VG 1.1

• 1080 p video encoding and decoding

• Dedicated audio engine that is unbelievably low powered

• Support for 24-bit WXGA that avails an irresistible 1280 x 800 pixel display

It is very important to be noted that the GPU is however sourced for the incredible AMD or ATI which is quite similar to the earlier chipsets. The prime example of this could be the one that is effectively used in Nexus One which avails a dedicated GPU that is on chip. Moreover, it is die base on the Z430 ATI or ADI design.

Preserving battery life

Recently Android platform has been quite busy with Snapdragon. So, it is evident that as a user you have not to be surprised if you detect a dual core Android Smartphone that is truly waiting for the greedy hands of users to invariably adorn it. Fortunately, technology is very advanced to take care of the second core tuning where it makes handsets to automatically switch off thus effectively preserving the life of the battery.

Google Support Aside, WebM Carries Patent risk from MPEGLA

After announcement of launching of WebM, a format of multimedia, some debated issues like patent and royalty are being discussed there in the webpage. The fact is that WebM is supported by VP8, a high quality video codec and it is going to be royalty free multimedia software. Google has developed it after acquisition of On2, a video technology company. When WebM is going to be a open source version, it is obvious that people will welcome it. However, some threats are posing here. In the Wall Street Journal, a representative of MPEGLA has claimed that its members may hold patents over the some key technologies used in VP8. The statement hints that Google has violated the patent law launching the WebM software. More than that having been freely distributed the WebM will make much obstacles in the way of the success of H.264, a widely used patented video format, developed by MPEGLA consortium. Same threat stands to HTML5, developed by Adobe system.

Critics remember us if there is chance to be into a long battle over the license and patent. We have already seen a fierce battle between Apple and Microsoft. Google is also suffering from litigation over the HTC software. Google claims that they have tested it cautiously and ready to overcome all the odds regarding patent. One of the most software players, Red Hat’s Wildeboer supported WebM saying: “we should adopt webM and adopt it everywhere. Don’t be afraid of patent threats.” Some chip makers including ARM, MIPS, Nvidia and Texas support Google’s move towards establishing the VP8 video codec. Browser makers like Opera and Mozilla has also come openly in support of Google’s WebM.

In despite of all this, MPEGLA proceeds to explore a patent pool for VP8 or wait to lodge a complaint of patent-right for the right moment when WebM will get a large exposure, there will be an opportunity of earning the large revenue if they win the case. And people will be deprived to access WebM as royalty free format. People will be the ultimate looser.

Therefore it is constant debated topic. Public views are divided. Even the patent itself much confused and debated subject. Had there been developed any device following the Newton’s law during Newton’s lifetime, would he have claimed the royalty and patent right? Research modification and upgradation are an ongoing process through which technologies come out. Internet, which is the future, also believes on openness where no one is credited for their innovation. Because it knows that everything comes from the same place, the land of knowledge.
