We know Qualcomm has been working on a dual-core 1.5GHz Smartdragon chip for a while now, but it appears that chip will be extensively delayed.
Qualcomm is reported to have stated the new dual-core chip won’t be released until late in 2011, whereas previous reports placed it shipping late this year. The consolation prize is that they will be shipping 1.2GHz single-core Snapdragons in Q1 2011, with a dual-core version coming a few months later.
Lenovo is working on several Android-powered devices that we hope to see this year, including the slate LePad and some form of a smartbook. It looks like we won’t see them powered by a dual-core Snapdragon, but hopefully they will at least get the slightly faster 1.2GHz chip.
