Nokia, Samsung, HTC and Huawei will be building Windows Phone 8 devices with Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets

Microsoft said its hardware partners for Windows Phone 8 will include Nokia (of course), but also Samsung, HTC and Huawei. Qualcomm Snapdragon will be the silicon of choice, meaning that we will probably see dual-core phones with Snapdragon S4 being predominant in the Windows Phone 8 universe...

well i like that they've only chosen one chipset to roll with but i wish it was something better like an OMAP5 or something.

If i was Samsung or HTC i would drop Windows phone (just saying). until they drop their law suit against Android OS

with qualcom already having suppy issues was that really the best choice? maybe its because they are short on lte options. my guess is that we will see more chips down the road as the A15 exynos and OMAP launch.

By quarter 4 I believe Qualcom should be able to supply the chips; especially that I think by that time other manufacturers would have their A15 chips out!

good thing i was holding back on buying WP7.5 which cannot be upgradeable to WP8 as announced. Will just wait for the new release of next gen WP version 8 soon....
