Qualcomm says Snapdragon APQ8080 new for TouchPad

Qualcomm today detailed the processor behind the HP TouchPad. It confirmed that the Snapdragon APQ8060 was launching first with the webOS tablet and had large amounts of headroom. The dual-core, 1.2GHz processor uses new Adreno 220 graphics and can play 1080p stereoscopic 3D, it said, even if the TouchPad didn't support it.

The processor can also render up to 16-megapixel still images from a camera or eight-megapixel 3D images. It can show a full 3D resolution either through an HDMI output or through a glasses-free, autostereoscopic panel.

No other companies are known to be using the APQ8060 so far and might not for some time. The TouchPad is due to ship sometime in the summer and might be joined by other companies using the same Snapdragon. Most Android 3.0 tablet designers are using NVIDIA's competing Tegra 2.
