Qualcomm showcased Snapdragon 802, a new chip for televisions at the CES 2014. However, this new chip will not be used in televisions as the company feels the demand of these chips are less then they planned of.

In a blog from Jon Carvill, who is the Sr. Director, Public Relations for Qualcomm it notes:

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. has decided not to commercialize the recently announced Snapdragon 802 processor as the overall demand for processors uniquely designed for smart TVs has proven to be smaller than anticipated. 

The company also notes this will not affect the production of any other product. However, with the non availability of technology like the Snapdragon 802 chips, it somehow feels that we have restricted ourselves with the technology we move around on daily basis. What do you think ?
