TegraZone Competitor Snapdragon GameCommand from Qualcomm Will See CES Launch

Towards the end of last year Qualcomm announced plans to launch a content portal for devices based around their Snapdragon series of processors. Snapdragon GameCommand, a service that takes a page from NVIDIA’s TegraZone book, will feature games optimized for Snapdragon devices and spotlight the efforts of developers. It will also provide news feeds relevant to mobile gaming. When can we start downloading all the Snapdragon-ready games we can handle? Qualcomm has the launch of GameCommand penned in to coincide with the beginning of this year’s CES. Look for the app in the Android Market starting January 10th in North America, with the service reaching other regions later in the year.

    Yay, I hope they do it right.

    So Qualcomm is going to release an app optimized to take advantage on an inferior chipset (graphically) compared to tegra chips? Never cared for snapdragon chips much, especially in the evo.. I line the Samsung apps and tegra zone

    • TeflonDon45

      Well first off the graphics chip in the evo 3d is no where near inferior. your just a dumbass who needs to keep his mouth shut cause you have no idea of what you are talking about.

  • Nemesys06

    Evo 3d= inferior product in every way, shape, and form. Even the 3d screen is below par. As for the name calling, please grow up. I stated my opinion. Don’t get so defensive.

    • TeflonDon45

      Exactly it’s your “opinion” thanks for clarifying that everything you’ve just stated is not a fact and that you could be and are wrong

        there is no wrong about it… it is how i feel and what i believe.  I owned the motorola photon, evo 3d and epic touch…  and i feel the snapdragon is far behind the competition.  i speak from experience.  i’m sure there are a lot of die-hard evo fans, whom may be biased.  i am not biased towards any company, just my experience.  the tegra 2 seemed to run much better than the snapdragon.  neither tegra 2 or snapdragon came even close to the exynos in samsungs phone, but of the three the snapdragon felt like it was behind the competition.  the new 1.5ghz dual core chips are better, it is just a shame that it took that much more power to compare against the competition.  again, this is my opinion…  an opinion based on personal experience.
