Snapdragon smartbook, smartphone to be launched in Korea this year

Qualcomm has recently announced that it would soon enter the South Korean market with mobile devices based on it powerful Snapdragon processor.

Reportedly, Korean carriers will launch both a smartphone and a smartbook that run on the Snapdragon platform.

The smartbook will be manufactured by a Taiwanese producer, while the smartphone should be made by a Korean company – most probably Samsung or LG.

Both devices will be available as early as the fourth quarter of 2009, for prices that are currently not known (the smartbook, however, will be cheaper than Intel chip-based Netbooks).
