CES Reports

I'm having a hard time keeping track of Nate's and Dulin's reports from CES, so I thought I'd pull all the links together and put them in one post. If I've missed any, please feel free to add them.

In no particular order:

The one functional unit had an incomplete and still buggy firmware, so I couldn't actually read anything on it. The projected release date is April with a retail of $169.

Samsung announced a pair of ebook readers for the US market at CES. I couldn't get in to the press conference, but when I saw Engadget's live blog I grabbed my notebook and snuck in. Only the 6” model (the E6) was on hand, but I was told that the 9.7” model (E101) would be on display tomorrow in Samsung's booth.

They're going to have the demo units on display in their booth at CES. I half expected this announcement; that's why this company was already on my list.

I've been talking about a device like this for years. One that can pull everyones calendar info together for a Family and also be used for news reading, recipes etc. My version would be something Bistable for power efficiency but Im happy to see something going more in this direction.

Now give it a fridge mount LG should do a fridge with a pop out 3g/4g/Bluetooth tablet
