With ARM-based processors becoming more powerful with every new generation, the idea of using such devices for powering next-generation ultra-thin notebooks and entry-level PC seems extremely plausible, and Qualcomm wants to be one of the first ARM licensees to get into this market.
This information was made public by no other than the company's Senior Vice President and President at QCT Europe, Enrico Salvatori.
In a recent interview with the Fudzilla publication, Salvatori said that the company's goals include optimizing its platforms for smartphones and tablets and later going after the notebook and PC market.
From a hardware point of view, Qualcomm believes that the company is ready for the transition, and now it's up to operating systems and vendors to do their part.
