Mobile, Tablets and the Cloud to Dominate CES
3DTV and connected TVs have been all the rage the past couple of years at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), but so far there's been little hype surrounding those topics leading up to the latest show, held Jan. 10 to 13 in Las Vegas. Instead, everyone seems to be talking about mobile. "Mobile and portable connected devices are driving growth in the CE industry and will be a major focus of the 2012 CES," said Karen Chupka, SVP of events and conferences for the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). "The 2012 CES is the best place to see all the latest tablets and smartphones that bring broadband capability to wireless devices that fit the way consumers work, live and play." CEA research has tablet computer growth at nearly 160% for 2011, with more than 26.5 million units shipped, producing $14 billion in revenue. Smartphone sales are expected to grow 45% by the time the year's finished, producing $23 billion in revenue. CES's Access on the Go TechZone will highlight devices that deliver on-the-go content, including movies, TV and music, and basically every major smartphone company, other than Apple, will be on hand. Digital Hollywood will run a two-day Smartphone and Tablet Conference with several panels Jan. 9 and 10.
