DAVOS, Switzerland -- Smart glasses will be the next central information device, Qualcomm's president and CEO told attendees at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum here on Tuesday, calling them the next stage in an evolution that has progressed from personal computers to smartphones.

The next trend is the "merging of physical and digital spaces," Cristiano Amon said, noting that smartphones have the drawback of the limited size of the screen. Smart glasses are the device that his company is "very passionate about," he said.
