    Here's the first of a few stories from late last night at CES. This one is a follow-up to "wicked's" story from last night. We wanted to share a few more details of the higher-end chip's primary features for all the tech-heads. Qualcomm officially unveiled their new Snapdragon lineup. They are moving away from the "S" series naming convention. Their new chips will be called the Snapdragon 200, 400, 600 & 800. The 200 series will be their budget-friendly chips, and the 400 will be for the moderate crowd. The 600 and 800 are left for the high-end flagship devices. Of course, we are most excited by the upper echelon chips, so here's a breakdown of specs for Qualcomm's newest beastly tech:
    Supposedly, the 600 series chips will be 40% faster than their previous Snapdragon S4 Pro chips, and the 800 series will be 75% faster. If these figures turn out to be true, then it looks like Qualcomm could have another huge hit on their hands.
