Since the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) of 2010 concluded on January 10th, I wanted to use this article to cover some of the interesting gadgets that you might see hit the market this year.
Television technology has quickly expanded in the past few years to provide a better viewing quality and picture. Blue-ray is better than DVD and HDTV is better than basic TV. So, what beats HDTV? Panasonic and Sony are both working on what they believe is the new 3D revolution; Panasonic announced that it has plans to release five 3D Plasma HDTV models this year.
Ford showed off the MyFord Touch, an in-car dashboard allowing users to connect to the Internet through a USB modem, play music and videos and install apps which are controllable by the dashboard or voice. The device is set to appear in the 2011 Ford Edge.
MSI displayed their new dual-display Windows 7 netbook, which opens up like a normal netbook, but instead of a monitor and keyboard, the device includes two monitors and no keyboard (one screen is located where the keyboard should be located). The device allows users to move windows between the two screens and popup an on-screen keyboard.
Several cell phones were hot gadgets at the show this year, including some of the new Google Android phones. One of the top phones was the new HTC HD2, which had previously been launched in Europe and Asia and was currently awaiting launch in the United States. The phones major feature was it’s 1GHz Snapdragon processor, definitely one of the most powerful phones available.
iPhone users who attended CES had a major problems using their devices to send email, access the internet and use iPhone Apps. AT&T, the cellular carrier who is the exclusive provider for iPhone service, stated that the large numbers of iPhone users at CES clogged the network.
