According to CNN's Mark Milian (love that name) we can expect Tablets, Tablets, and more Tablets, as well as Smartphones, 3D TVs, connected appliances, and of course video gaming. Some 80 new tablet devices will occupy the booths which is no surprise. The most interesting concept for me, one that has been around for some time but only now seems to be maturing, is the connected appliance. It seems that cell carriers are behind the latest push along with the more traditional Wi-Fi offerings. I am anxious to learn of the ways in which the industry choses to employ this technology. It's apt to be an easing in process where we get alerts via sms or twitter, but there are possibilities here that go well beyond "the toast is burning"... look for a wrap up post after the news starts hitting the wire.
