There was no hard news from Qualcomm at its second annual Innovation Qualcomm event in London on Wednesday, although the chipmaker did share some interesting developments, including the progress made by its Mirasol display technology which is set to come to market via e-reader devices in Q1 next year.

Andrew Gilbert, president of Qualcomm Internet Service (QIS) and Qualcomm Europe, was slated to speak at the event but pulled out late last week and instead appeared on the big screen, having pre-recorded his presentation. Why? Apparently another pressing engagement came up.
