If you liked the Raspberry Pi 1, then you will love the Pi 2. The performance jump is excellent, and the extra memory really helps the desktop performance.
According to new reports Qualcomm, Nvidia and Broadcom are all ready to release 64-bit quad-core processors during the first six months of 2014. The new chips could be announced shortly, maybe even as soon as January during CES 2014.
Looking to make the most out of your Wi-Fi connection? Broadcom has now announced next-gen 5G Wi-Fi chips aimed at the entry-level consumer market.
Broadcom’s brand new 28 nanometer modem sounds amazing, so much so that it should make Qualcomm a bit scared, but the sad thing is it’s shipping in 2014. Sigh.
Samsung’s plan for taking over the entry-level segment involves working with third-party chipset vendors like Qualcomm, Broadcom, and ST-Ericsson in order to produce models with the highest price-to-performance ratios ever.
Broadcom has just announced that they’ve licensed ARM’s latest architectures with the intent on designing their own cores. Should Qualcomm be scared?
Broadcom, one of the chip makers you don’t hear about all too often these days, has just announced three new products. Starting with the slowest one, the BCM21654G, it has a 1 GHz ARM Cortex A9, it can support 800 x 480 pixel displays, and it has built-in 7.2 megabit per second 3G. Next up is the dual core BCM21664T. It bumps up the clocks to 1.2 GHZ, and the 3G gets kicked up to 21 megabits per second. Finally there’s the quad core model, the BCM28145/155, which is a bit strange.
The In-Location Alliance is made up of 22 companies including mobile industry giants, Samsung, Sony Mobile, and Nokia. They are aiming to provide accurate indoor mobile positioning and to launch and support location-based indoor services and solutions.
If the speed of the Wi-Fi 802.11n spec isn’t fast enough for you, you should celebrate the upcoming 802.11ac spec, which, according to Broadcom, promises speeds of up to 3x faster, with... 6x less power consumption for mobile devices. Whether you believe these claims or not, the fact that the 802.11ac spec will be a big improvement over 802.11n is a given.

Those who often put themselves at the mercy of GPS devices to navigate their way home may find current navigation technology lacking in certain aspects. From the not-so-accurate... position readings and the long satellite locking time, to the battery drain that we came to expect when using our smartphones as satnav devices, there are things about GPS that can ruin your travel.<...
