Qualcomm looking to make a comeback


According to Strategy Analytics, Samsung dominated the dual-core smartphone processor market in 2011, with a commanding 60 percent share.

Qualcomm, Texas Instruments and Nvidia trailed with Snapdragon, OMAP4 and Tegra chips, but even their combined share does not come close to Samsung. It is estimated that dual-core chips made up for about 20 percent of all smartphone processors shipped last year.
