Qualcomm has announced their latest Snapdragon processor at CES 2014. It's called the Snapdragon 802 but it isn't aimed at smartphones and tablets. Instead it's aimed at next gen smart TV's, set top boxes, and digital media players.
It seems that HDTV is just now catching on with many homes now owning an HDTV and more options now available through satellite, cable, streaming, and blu-ray for watching HDTV content. There are even better standards on the horizon.
The CEA (Consumer Electronics Association) has announced that over the next 12 months Smartphones and HDTV's will be the top CE (Consumer Electronics) purchases. Tablet computers will likely see their largest growth this year.
