Low-end and quad-core? Nexus 7 like devices with capable hardware at low price points? Great stuff.

I think Qualcomm is starting to shape up into Intel of the future

darac, it was always us who stood up to everyone. When people were calling it crapdragons & so on. Now Texas Instruments said bye, bye to OMAP so it looks like no OMAP 5 at all.

Qualcomm's domination is so HUGE that the Krait S4 in the form of dual & quad-cores will actually start to come out in entry line devices. If you have such a powerful processor would it STILL be considered entry level? lol

All I know is that the Exynos 5 won't be in entry level devices & that will surely help Qualcomm's world domination even more.

I have said it once & I will say it again, Qualcomm is the undisputed world champion & will continue to ride this new renaissance or golden age.

I disagree. TI is atleast going to bring out the OMAP 5. They were working preety hard on it and even showed some prototypes. So they are going to atleat make the OMAP 5 as their last product.

If Qulacomm plays its cards right then we can see a paradigm shift and diversity in sillicon not only in smartphones but also in larger devics.
+1 for options!

no gpu details? I expect a better one than adreno 205. Not adreno 203 present in the current s4 play chips.

would be nice to have good entry level android hopefully below the 200€ cause sony makes really good low end phones but are a bit over the 200€ here.
maybe we'll get more brands now with great low ends and maybe a bit cheaper.
