CES 2012: The End of Planned Obsolescence
This year’s Consumer Electronics Show was just as large and incomprehensible as ever; thousands of vendors, more than 100,000 attendees (140K by one estimate), acres of show floor to walk and dozens upon dozens of behind-closed door meetings. That was CES. Yet, that was not the story of CES 2…

The phone features a high-resolution 4.03-inch LCD screen and is running Android Gingerbread OS on the company’s Medfield phone platform. A company representative said versions of the phone are also running Ice Cream Sandwich but none were being shown publicly at CES.

At a show filled with more than a million square feet of exhibit space packed with brand-new gizmos, I’m lugging around what’s got to be the oldest relic actively being used in the press room: An IBM R50 ThinkPad. That’s IBM, the company that hasn’t actually made laptops since 2005.

CES remains the biggest stage for the tech industry, and one of Las Vegas’ biggest money-making conventions each year.
Long-time CES attendee Danielle Levitas, an IDC analyst, has seen the show’s ups and downs first-hand.
"It felt like CES was about to explode in 2006, when attendance hit astonishing numbers," Levitas said. "Then the global crisis hit and understandably, attendance dropped. But it has rebounded and seems to be going strong."
For the worldwide media and analysts covering CES, the number of attendees and square footage pale in importance compared to the show-and-tell over four busy days. The CEA expects more than 20,000 new products to be launched at the show, which has one veteran product reviewer upbeat.
"A few years ago there was a sentiment that CES was becoming less relevant because of certain companies dropping out and other reasons, but you don’t hear that lately," said Steve Kruschen, better known as "Mr. Gadget" to television and radio audiences.

The “Nikiski” system featured a large touchpad that runs the length of the keypad. Translucency allows it to serve as a see-through window when the lid was closed. When open, the touchpad will recognize the difference between finger-tip scrolling and the palm of your hand resting on it while typing. When closed, a see- through window/tablet concept allows you to view news feeds, messages and calendar items without opening the lid.

+ Smaller Exhibitors Gamble on Show Floor Location.
Being beside big brands can mean added attention for smaller exhibitors, but trade show veterans know it can yield mixed results, especially at the Consumer Electronics Show. How does a “little fish” exhibitor attract attention in the enormous pond that is the gigantic International Consumer Electronics Show?
