The final countdown to CES 2010 (January 7-10), the largest electronics trade show on the planet, has begun, but what can we expect from the show?! Here are some areas that are going to dominate at CES this year, according to Pocket-Lint.
Digital Living: The Gadget Era
Las Vegas Convention Center will be filled with technology launches that embrace all of us rather than just a select few. And it means the Gadget Era: gadgets for kids, gadgets for mums and dads that look after kids and so on.
Apple or related to Apple products
Apple isn’t attending CES but that doesn’t mean companies that work in the Apple Eco-system aren’t going to be this year in Las Vegas launching new gadgets. With a whole area dedicated to the iPod, iPhone and Macs, expect a fair share of iPod speakers, cables to connect to something else in your life and the usual array of cases to protect it all. Just check the latest iPhone add-on – Mophie’s iPhone Credit Card Reader to believe that words above are true.
The ebook market has exploded in the US with Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Sony, and the latest new product – Skiff Reader, all fighting over each other to offer you the digital reader you supposedly need.
Riding on the wave of euphoria that Avatar will no doubt give the industry, consumer electronics manufacturers like Sony, Toshiba, LG and Samsung will be likely to be pushing 3D HDTV hard at CES 2010. IFA 2009 already showed us the concepts, CES will show us the reality.
While most people have surely moved on from the popularity of netbooks, CES organisers CEA believe netbooks are going to still be big news at CES 2010. What that means is a barrage of computers that don’t do much but let you surf the Web and write the odd document. Of course manufacturers will be trying to tell us otherwise with improved graphics courtesy of Nvidia and ATI.
