Marvell is releasing a quad-core chip named PXA1088 which is set to be in phones and tablets later this year. It has an ARM Cortex-A7 quad-core chip with support for global HSPA+ networks.
It seems as though Marvell is changing its game a little to better suit the U.S. market. Marvell products were used in many Blackberry products until 3 years ago when they changed their market focus. While they are still a big hit in China this new PXA1088 is geared more towards $100 price range phones.
This handy new chip is rumored to be displayed at the Mobile World Congress in Spain this month. Stayed tuned with our blog here at BVA for the latest information about this and other new gadgets.
