The annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) runs January 7 to 10 in Las Vegas and manufacturers are ready to display upcoming products and trends that we might expect to see in stores during 2010. Though some indicate that the 2010 CES is more intimate than those of previous years, there are over 2700 exhibitors ready to display what they hope and feel will be the pulse that will entice customers through the year.
Sony and Panasonic will likely be demonstrating their new 3D HDTV technologies that were introduced this past summer in other electronics shows in Europe. When you consider the success of Avatar, more 3D films are likely to be released. The concept of a possible 3D television in 2010 is very enticing.
Sony, Samsung, and Philips are developing Internet capable televisions to help expand your entertainment and informational possibilities.
Electronic Book Readers or E-Books are expected to expand with more manufacturers forwarding their versions. There have been rumors of color displays and backlit screens. So far, among the major manufacturers, Sony has been the leader in E-Book innovations.
Lenovo plans to add more graphic new Intel processing power to their notebook line, demonstrating that graphics play more influential roles in business and elsewhere.
802.11n WiFi wireless networking is expected to become more prevalent, with greater range, speed, and security than the current 802.11g standard. The introduction of WIMAX, a new long-distance wireless network standard, as a futurist technology that may take hold in 2011, is going to be touted as a mainstream ‘next’.
USB 3.0 will be promoted as a new USB port protocol. With data transfer speeds shooting towards 5GB per second, it’s over 6-times the speed of USB 2.0. Think how that will influence the speed of downloading music and video.
Keep focused on here throughout the week for more details and information as CES vendors make their announcements.
