Thin Clients, VDI and Linux integration from the front lines.... Raw and sometimes unedited notes based on my experiences with VMware, Thin Clients, Linux etc.

Holy Smokes Batman, what wont you be able to do on the go? Considering that this quite likely eclipses the resources that you would have typically used for a Server a decade ago?

What with Samsung now looking in to running a hypervisor on mobile devices and the ability to actually run a web server as well - it make me wonder what's next?

The only thing that's still missing is a new and innovative way to communicate to the device, I'd love to be able to bypass the keyboard if we could just find a better faster way?

Qualcomm unveils 1 GHz mobile phone processors

Nov. 14, 2007
Qualcomm has unveiled the first two products in its "Snapdragon" family of chipsets aimed at next-generation mobile phones. The dual-core QSD8250/8650 chipsets clock to 1 GHz, include a "universal modem" claimed to support "all 2G and 3G mobile broadband standards," and are being demonstrated running Windows CE- and Linux-based OSes, the company said.

According to Qualcomm, the QSD8250 offers HSPA data rates of up to 7.2 Mbps on the downlink and 5.76 Mbps on the uplink, with full backward compatibility. The dual-mode QSD8650 offers HSPA, as well as CDMA2000 1xEV-DO Rev. B, again backward-compatible with WCDMA and GSM/GPRS/EDGE.
Both chipsets include an ARM-based 1 GHz "Scorpion" microprocessor with 128-bit SIMD (single instruction multiple data) capability, plus a 600 MHz low-power, "low-leakage" DSP. According to Qualcomm, they also offer WiFi, Bluetooth, and a "universal broadcast modem" that can receive broadcasts in MediaFLO, SDMB, ISDB-T, TDMB, and DVB-H formats.

Other multimedia capabilities are said to include XGA display support, WVGA (800 x 480) encode/decode, and audio support for MP3, aacPlus, and enhanced aacPlus. In addition to supporting GPS, the QSD8250 and QSD8650 also support cameras with resolution up to 12 MB, Qualcomm says.
In addition to offering "unsurpassed mobile processing performance," the new chips also provide extended, "all-day" battery life, claims Qualcomm.
