Engadget has posted a detailed look into the future of Apple devices and the shift to Qualcomm chipsets in their mobile device line. Have a look below:
The new iPad will feature a dual GSM / CDMA chipset produced by Qualcomm and will mark Apple's shift away from Infineon as its chipset maker to Qualcomm for all of its mobile devices.
