Consumer Electronics Show 2011 Preview

The time has come.  Thousands of tech-industry companies are amassing in the desert and preparing to showcase their latest gadgets and technology at the world's largest annual tech trade show, the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.  All the big players will be there:  Verizon, Apple, Google, Samsung, Toshiba, and many more.

Whereas past events have served as showcases for some new, ground-breaking technologies like 3D televisions, HD TV, or the Palm Pre, insiders say this year's show will focus more on improvements to existing technologies.  Manufacturers are expected to display the same Internet TVs, tablet computers, robots, and smartphones, but they will be better, faster, and there will be lots more of them.

The 2011 CES also has a bit of suspense involved.  Verizon's top executive, Ivan Seidenberg, is scheduled to deliver the keynote address, and tech junkies are anticipating he will announce the long-rumored Verizon iPhone.  Seidenberg will likely boast about his company's shiny new 4G network, but insiders doubt that he'll get to make the announcement of a new iPhone designed to run on it, as Apple rarely affords other companies the opportunity to make major product announcements on its behalf.

The majority of manufacturers' wares on display through the course of the CES are expected to be tablet computers.  Just about every major electronics and computing company will unveil one in an attempt to compete with Apple's iPad, which has basically created and defined the market. 

The majority of the new tablets will be Android-based, and Google has worked feverishly to get the new version of the operation system, Android 3.0 a.k.a. Honeycomb, ready in time.  Among the manufacturers expected to unveil new Honeycomb-based tabs are Acer, Archos, Asus, Creative, Dell, Entourage, Fusion Garage, LG, Motorola, MSI, Notion Ink, Samsung, Toshiba, and ViewSonic.  Microsoft is expected to unveil a new line of tablets, as well, running on its Windows 7 operating system.
