This post brought to you by Snapdragon by Qualcomm. All opinions are 100% mine.
I live right outside of New Orleans, the home of what was once the Superdome. It recently got a name change and is now called the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, which I guess means it's supposed to be more high-end. It's too bad I don't live in San Diego, because their Qualcomm Stadium is being renamed to Snapdragon Stadium for 11 days! That's much more awesome than Mercedes-Benz anyday!
Starting December 18th for 11 days, Qualcomm Stadium will be named after Qualcomm's most famous processor chips: Snapdragon Stadium. During this time, the stadium will host a Chargers vs. Ravens game and two college games: the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsetta Bowl on Dec. 21 and the Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl on Dec. 28!
I'm excited for the name change because I feel that this could pave the way of bringing in some "geeky" flair to sports. I heard a lot of "what?"s coming from people when they heard about the Snapdragon name change but others knew about the awesome little processors.
Snapdragon processors by Qualcomm are the digital brains inside mobile devices made specifically for smart phones. Many top manufacturers, such as Samsung, Nokia, HTC, and LG, use these processors to get lightning-fast devices. Over 250 devices contain these processors, such as the new HTC Rezound, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9, and the LG DoublePlay.
Qualcomm's Snapdragon processors are amazing for mobile gaming and multi-tasking, which is why many of these high-end devices use them. I honestly couldn't imagine using my Galaxy Tab without having a Snapdragon processor. It just wouldn't feel right.
What do you think of the name change? What other "geeky"-type products would you like to see a stadium get renamed, if even for a short time?
