E-readers, Tablets, and Mobile Devices To Be Center Stage At CES

Speculation has it that the focus of most new gadgets at this years Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas will be on E-readers, mobile devices, and touch screens. You might want to sprinkle a bit of 3d TV in there as well. The show which gets underway on Wednesday may also feature connectivity according to one analyst: “People are getting tired of very specific classes [of devices],” said technology analyst Carmi Levy. “Hardware will begin to take a back seat to connectivity and the services you can layer on that hardware. What [consumers] would rather do is avoid four or five devices, and just buy one device that does it all.”
