The Consumer Electronics Show is the most exciting event in the IT industry calendar. It's exciting for consumers because it's where the high-tech gadgets with the broadest appeal are launched; it's exciting for journalists because it's held in the spectacle that is Las Vegas - we don't have to face snowy Hannover in March (CeBIT) or an 18-hour flight to Taipei (Computex).
But while Las Vegas' extravagant hotels and star-studded shows wear a little thin after a few days, the products launched at CES often continue to keep us entertained for at least 12 months. This year, we hear that a successor to Asus' popular Eee PC will be launched, while next-generation TVs based on OLED (organic light emitting diode) technology will be on show, and there are even rumours that Microsoft might provide a glimpse of Vista's successor – codenamed Windows 7. Bill Gates will deliver the keynote on Sunday 6th January, and Windows watchers are already gossiping about what he's got in store for our PCs.
Whatever dominates the news at CES 2008, PC Advisor is the place to get the latest news, videos and opinions. We've set up a dedicated CES 2008 blog to provide you with everything you need to know from the show floor, so check our CES 2008 Blog regularly to see what consumer electronics manufacturers have lined up for us this year.
