Chip giant Qualcomm has introduced new 7- and 10-inch versions of the Qualcomm Reference Design tablet that will be based on the company's earlier, 3G-only Snapdragon 400 processors.

The company said the reference design should help its customers who were using chips designed for smartphones to power tablets. 

"While some of our customers have utilized Qualcomm Reference Designs for smartphones as a foundation for building and commercializing tablets in certain regions, Qualcomm Technologies has increasingly received customer interest in a Qualcomm Reference Design specifically designed for tablets in emerging regions," said Jeff Lorbeck, senior VP of product management at Qualcomm Technologies. 

Tablets based on this latest Qualcomm Reference Design will run on Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM 8230 and MSM 8030 processors, respectively, with 1.2 – 1.4GHz dual-core CPUs featuring the Android Jelly Bean mobile operating system, broadband HSPA+ (up to 21Mbps) 3G performance, integrated 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi up to 72 Mbps, 1080p high definition video playback at 30fps, 1080p high definition video capture, and Adreno 305 GPU.
