Outside of the obvious, this’ll push mobile phones into the realm of true computing speed and as convergence becomes the lynch-pin for every new device ever, the extra horsepower will simply blur the lines between mobile and desktop computing even further. Expect the new chips to hit high-end Samsung devices, soon.
