Amid record earnings, Qualcomm teases Snapdragon tablets

Assuming the leaked Topaz tablet specs hold true, we can expect it to be running the dual-core Snapdragon MSM8660. Whether it's about the HP Palm tablets or no, Qualcomm is certainly excited to see their speedy processors in tablets this year, telling investors "we currently have more than 150 Snapdragon devices in development, including more than 20 tablets."

To clear things up a bit, that MSM8660 can support both HSPA+ and EVDO Rev B, but LTE devices will probably require the MSM8960. Those 20 tablets are part of a set of 60 devices slated to use the MSM8660 chip, so it's not out of the realm of possibility that we'll see the same chip powering future webOS phones. Either way, here's to hoping that webOS fans can be as pumped as Qualcomm is about 2011.
