The International Consumer Electronics Show is a little over
a week away at this point – and while the recession will likely have an impact
on attendance once again, there won’t be a lack of new products and
technologies on display.
The Consumer Electronics Association, which hosts the show,
says a record 330 new companies will be exhibiting this year – bringing the
total to well over 2,500. All totaled, there will be more than 20,000 new
products on display.
Trends to watch this year include 3D HD TVs (likely to be
the biggest push on the show floor), a bigger focus on green tech and an
increased focus on apps for the iPhone and iPod.
Technotainment will be at the show, with reports both during
and afterward to give you a look at what’s on the horizon.
Help us focus, though: What areas are most of interest to
you as readers? Let us know in the comments section or drop me a line at the

face-for-radio mug). Also welcome are any tips on ‘can’t miss’ devices that
will be at the show.
