Broadcom Corporation has announced a new baseband platform that provides simultaneous HSDPA modem connectivity and Android-based applications processing. The new Broadcom BCM2157 dual-core baseband processor provides a full suite of advanced functionality to deliver high-end smartphone features on more affordable 3G Android handsets. This includes mobile hot-spot, multi-touch screens, innovative media and applications processing, and other capabilities that will help handset makers drive these features to a larger tier of users.

There’s a demand for a more affordable tier of smartphone handsets, satisfying a broader consumer desire for the ability to run applications, view and share media, and enjoy a dynamic touch screen experience, all at a lower price point.

The increasing proliferation of these features is driving growth in mobile data consumption. The BCM2157 baseband processor platform includes a 3G HSDPA modem that supports 7.2 Mbps downstream connectivity and worldwide roaming.
