Arlington, Va., September 1, 2010 - The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)® today announced the launch of CES' newest TechZone, Access on the Go, co -sponsored by the International Digital Publishing Forum. This new TechZone is dedicated to technology that is changing the way consumers access content. The 2011 International CES, the world's largest consumer technology tradeshow, is set to run January 6 -9 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
With the steady increase in demand for on -the -go content, mobile devices that deliver music, movies, television, books and magazines have become more popular.

The Access on the Go TechZone will showcase the most innovative devices relating to eBooks, netbooks, smartbooks and tablets, including brands such as Handii and the Entourage eDGe.
