We're working on technologies to help network operators handle the data traffic and drive costs down. At Qualcomm we call it the 1000X Challenge
I don't know if networks can really handle a 1,000x usage on the network. If you listen to the carriers, they all say there isn't enough spectrum.
Small cells. They're kind of like a Wi-Fi access point, but they also enable wireless connectivity
(Small cells have been a favorite topic for Jacobs for awhile. He has talked them up at many presentations, conferences, etc)

Qualcomm booth this week will have the Nascar app on a Snapdragon TV
I know this is some cool stuff. But I remember a few years ago --pre iPad days -- I got a briefing from Verizon Fios TV folks about using tablets as a TV remote. Who would have thought that Verizon saw the future?
Will see Smart TVs and set top boxes using Qualcomm tech

Sensors on or even in bodies.
