Users can check their Twitter account, read email, watch TV, or look up the weather, among other things. The device even boasts a virtual blinds feature! How very Minority Report!

New Gadgets to Debut at CES

One of the biggest tradeshows to take place every year is the Consumer Electronics Show or CES.  It is the opportunity for electronics companies to debut new and exciting products that they hope will be the next big thing on the gadget scene.

One of the promising products is the Samsung Player.  It is expected to rival that of the iPod Touch.  It features a touch screen that is about the size of a phone.  The screen is a 3.2 inch LCD. It has a 1000mAh replaceable battery, Wifi and an SD card for expandable memory. The cool thing too is that it has a free range for the Android market.   The only known drawback is the plastic case. 

You can be sure that CES will also feature a series of new tablets to compete with Apple.  Manufacturers are building new tablets that leverage the features Steve Jobs left out of the first iPad.  The iPad lacks a camera, has no USB or HMDI ports and does not support Flash.   A tablet with these features ought to prove more appealing to the consumer.  Most if the new to market tablets will utilize the Android Operating System while a few will feature Windows 7 or Linux.
