These new processors by Qualcomm are pretty damn amazing. They are also out by summer so at best we might see some next generation Windows Phones with one of these processors in MWC. Fingers crossed for 41MP Nokia PureView with this processor. First processor that actually makes it possible outside of the custom SoC Nokia had to make for 808 PureView.
Lets hope Microsoft keeps it word about Windows Phone 8 being easier for new SoC's and we see faster development there than we saw with WP7.x.

The issue is if the phone designs are too far along and these processors were not part of those plans then we won't see them in the devices we want. I would believe the summer release means the chips themselves would be available by summer meaning hardware would be along in the late summer or fall?

That said these chips usually seem to slip with days, but these are coming out sooner than usual and they indeed are already being sampled by manufacturers, so their official statement about the available devices might be true.

HtC 8X is already on Verizon and Nokia stated on their positive profit warning this week that in 2013 they will have low, mid and high end phone in AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile.
My guess is on the next wave we will see wider offering from Nokia on carriers in USA.
