Qualcomm, the San Diego wireless technologies giant, says it is previewing a variety of new applications at this week’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona that enable certain features of its Flo-TV technology to run on netbooks equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor. Qualcomm says its technology combines live mobile TV programming with real-time Web content and access to popular social networking sites like Twitter. For instance, sports fans watching a live match can use a social networking site to engage other fans while also getting teams stats and other data via real-time data streaming.
