This year’s Consumer Electronics Show kicked off the new year with a bang, with over 140,000 attendees packed into Las Vegas to check out over 2700 exhibitors. Some 20,000 new products were introduced at the show, including the launch of over 80 tablets.
The big theme this year was connectivity, with connected TVs, Blu-ray players, set-top boxes, autos, and even major appliances — yes, your fridge is texting you. And while the industry continues to push hard to promote 3DTV, the action is in mobile connected devices — smartphones and tablets, as smartphones power up to “superphones” at desktop performance and broadband speed, and tablets proliferate to meet any conceivable niche.
So come explore the developments from CES at Doug Dixon’s annual round-up and demos of next generation in mobile gadgets and more.
