Qualcomm CEO Paul Jacobs touts that Windows RT devices based on the company's Snapdragon SoC will be better than similar products. Jacobs claims Snapdragon based tablets will be thinner and lighter, as well as provide better battery life than tablets based on ARM chips from other firms.
ZDNet.com reports that during the conference, Jacobs said that Snapdragon-based Windows RT products would be thinner and lighter than those of its competition. He also claimed that its devices would offer good performance along with "extended battery life". The first such products with the Snapdragon S4 chip will have the dual core MSM8960T model. Future versions will have the quad core APQ8064 chip inside.
One big mystery at the moment is which company will be the first to offer a Snapdragon-based Windows RT device. Jacobs would not give out that information last week at their developer conference. He only said that Snapdragon based products running Windows RT will be released when Windows RT and Windows 8 are officially launched later this year.
