Qualcomm's 1GHz Snapdragon processor powers some of the best high-end Android smartphones out there, including the HTC Nexus One,  EVO and Incredible and upcoming products like the Dell Streak.

Today's press release suggests that those phones are only the beginning and will be outpaced by much faster phones later this year.

Qualcomm (QCOM) states that devices using a 1.2GHz dual core version of the current single core processor are already being built and another chip running at up to 1.5GHz will also begin to start being designed into devices later this year.
