Apple attempting to do better than Consumer Electronics Show 2011
CES 2011, depending on previews proliferating on the web, will resemble CES 2010. Last year's annual technology trade show extravaganza featured the ballyhooed demo of a Microsoft windows tablet that never made it off the ground. The iPad was announced a few weeks later by Apple. Over 12 million iPads have sold since it went to stores in April. When Consumer Electronics Show 2011 gets under way Jan. 6, other tablet manufacturers will compete for attention as they introduce their devices. This is the day the Mac App Store will begin. It is starting up too. The Consumer Electronics Show 2011 might be upstaged by Steve Jobs though. Many think the iPad 2 could be introduced as well.
Making up ground to the leader, Apple
Catching up to Apple is the objective several manufacturers hope to make take place. This would be at the Consumer Electronics Show 2011 also. The feature for Samsung will be the Galaxy tablet. Evidently 1 million units have already been sold. Brands like Hewlett-Packard, Motorola, Dell, Toshiba, Acer, ASUS, and Research in Motion (RIM) will all be unveiling tablets. The success of Apple's iPad leads analysts to believe the industry potential for tablets will allow most of these players a modicum of success. Apple does not have to contend with all the cheap imitations of its gadget. They're all just attempting to have the cheapest price on their machines.
More will appear at Consumer Electronics Show 2011
Tablets might be the one thing that CES 2011 is all about. There can be excitement about the high speed of internet on smartphones too though as it has been promised since CES 2010 happened. Android phones for Verizon’s 4G high-speed LTE network could be introduced by Motorola, HTC and others. Internet-connected TVs will even proliferate, also as automobiles and household appliances that access wireless data networks to receive remote commands from their owners.
