Qualcomm CEO Paul Jacobs takes the stage at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas to try to fill the keynote vacancy left by Microsoft -- but ends up getting a helping hand from the software giant's chief.
Qualcomm CEO Paul Jacobs took the stage Monday at the Consumer Electronics Show to try to fill the keynote vacancy left by Microsoft. But he would get a helping hand from some big names from tech, sports, and entertainment -- including the chief executive responsible for delivering the keynote for the last couple of years.
Jacobs is joined on stage at CES 2013 by Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, who used to give the main keynote at the conference. Ballmer showed off two of the newest Windows RT devices, the Samsung ATIV and Dell XPS. Both are powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon processors.
Jacobs unveils the Snapdragon 600, which Qualcomm says sports performance up to 40 percent better than its older chips. He also unveiled the 800 series, which is said to have up to 75 percent better performance.
