Consumer Electronics Show 2011

Tablet computers are the latest, hottest craze. Nowhere was this more evident than at the prestigious Consumer Electronics Show 2011 held in Las Vegas. Photos below.

Slick touchscreen tablet computers and smarter devices for the home and the car took center stage as the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) wrapped up.

The always connected lifestyle was on full display at the annual gadget extravaganza as Internet technology ruled at a show traditionally dominated by eye-popping new television sets.

Tablet computers to rival Apple’s iPad were the hot new products on display along with powerful new smartphones, ultra-thin laptops and Web-connected and 3-D TV sets during the four-day event.

“The tablet wars are now launched, with everybody under the sun producing tablets,” said Endpoint Technologies Associates analyst Roger Kay.

“A lot of companies, particularly Asian companies, are offering to create tablets for you on the fly if you want a tablet with your brand on it.”

Emphasis on mobile gizmos and making traditionally dumb devices smart with Internet connections made CES celebrities out of chip makers Intel, AMD, and Nvidia as well as US telecom carriers Verizon and AT&T.
