International Consumer Electronic Show (CES)
is one of the biggest electronic and technology shows in the world.
This year it opens as usual in Las Vagus from 7-10 January.
More than 140 different countries will be represented by
manufacturers that will attend the CES 2010.
200 conferences with 300 speakers will be held during this event.
If you are interested in what is new in the world of gadgets and technology
then this is the event to follow.
In this post I will briefly list the most important keywords in CES this year,
so you may have a glimpse of what new things
are released or will be in the near future.
3D TV and 3D blu-ray players are the news
for home theatre lovers.
3D TVs with new processors and 4k x 2k resolution
were announced to be ready for production
by manufacturers such as Toshiba, Samsung and LG.
3D cameras and video cameras were also demonstrated.
So are we gonna see 3D actors running around
in our living rooms ?
It all started with the e-ink then we got amazon's Kindle.
Now other manufacturers such as
Sony, Skiff and iriver has joined the club.
Other features were added to some models
like qwerty keyboards and browsing the web.
Are we seeing the end of paper books ??
انا من اول ما شفت كيندل في امازون
و انا اقول ليش ما يكون هذا كتاب الطالب الوحيد ؟
فكرة تستحق التطبيق
و مني للمسؤولين في وزارة التربية
I really feel sorry when I see a giant
company like Microsoft and all they do
is following rather than innovating.
They are introducing Bing, their new search engine.
Google is already here.
They are introducing Mediaroom.
Apple TV is already here.
They talked about the new XBox experience.
More online services and more new games.
They introduced Project Natal, which is
a new way of controlling the game with
the movement of the players body.
Well, to be fair that is the only innovation
they come up with, I guess.
Tablets or Slates
I think 2010 will be the year of the Tablets.
Every company is making one.
And the reason behind such rush in making them
is the strong rumors that Apple
is going to release one later in the month.
So everyone is trying to be ahead.
Apple was not present in CES physically.
But their influence was so obvious.
The rumors about a tablet by Apple
has obviously forced itself on other companies
to start making their own.
Another absentee was Google
with long-awaited 'Googlephone', the Nexus One,
which they decided to launch it later.
One more thought
We all know that the iphone has changed
the history of mobile phones making.
But could it also be the reason behind the end of laptops ?
iPhone has forced touch screens on everything.
And since I saw it along with ipod touch,
I said if I got an 11 or 13 inch ipod touch
who needs a laptop.
A strong rumor says that Apple is going to release a tablet.
Will it be the product that will kill the laptops ?
We will have to wait and see.
I hope you enjoyed reading this post.
It does not cover everything because that will need 10s of posts.
But I mentioned what I thought is interesting.
