With the significant increase in tablets coming to market, consumers are more interested in receiving their news visually – including infographics, video and even comic strips.

Day 3-LIVE from the Consumer Electronics Show- Las Vegas http://blogs.hillandknowlton.com/techandthedistrict/2011/01/08/day-3-live-from-the-consumer-electronics-show-las-vegas/ http://blogs.hillandknowlton.com/techandthedistrict/2011/01/08/day-3-live-from-the-consumer-electronics-show-las-vegas/#comments Sun, 09 Jan 2011 03:10:17 +0000 Lauren Wilson http://blogs.hillandknowlton.com/techandthedistrict/?p=736 This morning CNET recognized the best gadgets at CES and handed out awards for the best phones, tablets, and gaming devices.  The buzz on the Motorola XOOM has not died down, which probably comes as no surprise for winning the Best of Show Award.   According to CNET, this award is a big nod to Google’s work developing the Android Honeycomb operating system.

Day 3 on the CES Floor feels empty and I don’t think that’s a terrible thing. If you are here, and you hadn’t had a chance to look and experience the technology—this is definitely the best time! It can certainly be a challenge and slightly overwhelming to walk the entire show floor, especially if you’re here for a client—like myself.  CES attracted over 250,000 attendees this year, which included exhibitors, manufacturers, journalists, and bloggers (the event was not open to the public).
