Liveblog: Qualcomm CES 2013 keynote
Naturally, there hasn't been an abundance of leaks regarding Qualcomm's CES 2013 keynote, so what we're going to see is one big mystery. Will we get to see an answer to Tegra 4, the next-gen chip that Nvidia triumphantly announced yesterday? Who knows, we'll have to wait and see.
Qualcomm's CES 2013 keynote will begin at 6:30PM PT | 8:30PM CT | 9:30PM ET | 2:30AM GMT!

|21:52||At the end of the tour, Qualcomm's wireless charging solution has actually proven more reliable!|
|21:51||According to Paul, that car has went on a world tour, and they have used both standard electric charging, and Qualcomm's Halo.|
|21:50||Wow, it's a Rolls Royce, with an electric engine.|
|21:49||"We're working on a unique wireless charging technology called Qualcomm Halo." It's a technology for electric vehicles.|

|21:44||"There's a way to delve deeper in the mystery" of Star Trek Into Darkness, and that way is by using the app in question.|
|21:43||Oh, this whole thing has been about a new Star Trek app in the works. Actress Alice Eve is on stage to tell us more about it and the movie.|
|21:39||OK, we're now watching a trailer of the next Star Trek movie. We guess it's in Ultra HD... Full HD is so last year...|
|21:34||The app "Big Bird's Words" will be available this summer.|
|21:32||The new app is called "Big Bird's Words". It's purpose is to teach kids new words, whenever they find them!|
|21:31||Hey, it's Big Bird!|

|21:20||How does an in-car Wi-Fi hotspot sound to you?|
|21:19||Qualcomm is also working with some car manufacturers to make our vehicles that much more connected.|
|21:17||It'll all be part of their effort to cope with the upcoming rise in data traffic demand.|
|21:17||Qualcomm is working on the so-called "small cells", mini cellular towers that will be used for the denser networks of the future.|
|21:14||"We worked with Google on the first Android phone back in 2008." "Now, their flagship phone, the Nexus 4, is also powered by Snapdragon."|
|21:13||Wow, the Snapdragon 800 will also let you capture Ultra HD video, not just view it.|
|21:12||The idea was to see how well the Snapdragon 800 decodes Ultra HD movies.|
|21:11||OK, they are playing a scene from some zombie movie, which I haven't watched. And I never will.|
|21:06||The movie is called "Pacific Rim", by the way, and will be available in the summer. Seems pretty cool.|
|21:04||So here's the demo - they are playing an Ultra HD video using the Snapdragon 800.|
|21:03||Guillermo Del Toro, Producer, Writer and Director is here to say... something about the coolness of the Snapdragon, we guess.|
|21:02||The Snapdragon 800 will consume about half the power of the current Snapdragons. It's music to our ears, Paul.|
|21:01||Paul can also interact with the scene - he rotates it manually, and it manages to retain smooth performance.|
|21:00||Paul will now demo the power of the new Snapdragon 800. It's a beautiful, console-quality scene rendered in real-time.|
|20:58||A quad-core CPU, up to 2.3GHz per core. The Snapdragon 800s will appear in handsets in H2 2013.|
|20:58||"It's in a class in its own." Snapdragon 800 supports the LTE-Advanced standard. And it also features latest Wi-Fi technology.|
|20:57||So, the new super-processor is the Snapdragon 800 series.|
|20:57||Lol, Qualcomm has created a wonderful Snapdragon commercial.|
|20:56||"But that's not all, because we have an even better chip." And they are rolling a video.|
|20:55||New Snapdragon 600 series! Designed to deliver exceptional performance and rich graphics.|
|20:54||Steve says thanks to Paul for providing the chance to be here, as well as for having that sweet partnership between Microsoft and Qualcomm.|
|20:51||Windows Phones have sold 5 times better this Christmas season compares to the same period last year.|

I prefer Snapdragon, so far.
In my opinion, Snapdragon is better at CPU, and Tegra is better at GPU.
I'm not a gamer, so I choose Snapdragon.
