Preview The Latest Consumer Electronics Gadgets
By Carolyn Giardina
The 2010 International Consumer Electronics Show – a gadget enthusiast’s dream – is now one month away.
To help generate interest in some of the new technologies that will be featured at the annual event, the Consumer Electronics Association is launching a new online feature entitled “Countdown to CES: 30 Days of Innovation” from CNET, its official online media partner. (www.cnet.com/ces/30-days-of-innovation/).
For each of the 30 business days leading up to the 2010 International CES – which occurs January 7-10 in Las Vegas – CNET will profile a technology company in software, hardware, and green tech that is new to CES. That might include a look at new netbooks, digital televisions, mobile devices or other technologies that could help to quicken the pace of acceptance of online TV.
“CNET and CBS Interactive are valuable media partners who ensure our business attendees, and tech enthusiasts around the world, experience the amazing new products launched each year at the International CES,” said Karen Chupka, senior vp of events and conferences for CEA, the producer of the International CES. “This year CNET will help showcase the record number of new exhibitors at the 2010 International CES through Countdown to CES: 30 Days of Innovation.”
Additional coverage is planned for the week of the Las Vegas event, including the “Best of CES” competition, whose finalists will be announced on Jan. 8. During CES, CNET senior editor Martin LaMonica will moderate a sustainability-focused panel that will include “Best of CES” Green tech category finalists.
CNET will present a live webcast (www.cnettv.com) of the “Best of CES” winners announcement and awards presentation, which is scheduled to occur on Saturday, January 9 at 11 a.m., PST.
The 2010 Consumer Electronics Show is expected to attract an estimated 2,500 exhibitors, including 330 first-time participants. Over 100,000 attendees are expected. Details about the annual event can be found at www.ce.org.
