Top 5 CES 2010 Trends
Tom Merritt: Welcome to CNET’s Top 5. Each time we meet, we count down another hot scene of this, I’m Tom Merritt. We are here at CES 2010, the biggest consumer electronic show on earth. And every time we come here, everyone goes out and says, “Oh, what’s the biggest thing you saw at CES?” Well there’s always more than one. In fact, we identified five. So I got my bag for free stop. I’m going to hit the show floor and count down the top five biggest trends at CES 2010.
Starting us of at number five, Mobile DTV. Now this maybe a bigger trend next year but we’re starting to see it in a lot of different devices as you could see. It’s the ability to broadcast digital TV wirelessly to any kind of device; DVD players, cellphones, a whole lot of different things.
Coming in at number four, Apps, they’re apparently in everything this year. I found them in home automation systems, printers, more reasonably televisions. If you got an electronics device apparently there are apps for that.
Coming in at number three, E-readers. First there was Sony, then Kindle, then Nook now everybody is getting in the game. If you have thought about getting into reading digital books, now is your chance to shop the marketplace and find one that fits you. There’s a ton of amount there and they’re almost all wireless.
Sliding in at number two, tablets, I mean Slates because tablets are those things that failed back in 2002. Everybody’s got a tablet and a slate computer this year. And a lot of them do a lot more things than they used to do five years ago and they’re all in the shadow of what Apple may or may not do.
Before we get to number one, I need a break and time for another lame price. Oh, it may not be that lame, but filling up the swag bag with all kinds of prices, kind of lame means. Others not so lame like a spec case. All bag is yours if you can answer your trivia question at blog.cnettv.com. We want the first 10 people to answer this question correctly. People listening to me while I’ll record this record, no, you don’t get an edge. You have to wait until the video goes up. Here’s the question. In 1967, the consumer electronic show started, what tradeshow did it spin offer. Once again, answer the question correctly. Be the one of the first 10 to do so at blog.cnettv.com, swag bag, yours.
Alright, it’s time for our number one, the biggest trend at CES 2010, the big buzz word at number one, it’s 3D. And it’s mostly on TV because although any marketing director worth your budget is trying to claim 3D for pretty much any product. You will actually see these on your shelves this year though. You’ll be able to buy 3D TVs. You are living in the future. Next year, 4D.
That’s it for this edition of CNET Top 5. Don’t forget to answer the trivia question or blog post at blog.cnettv.com for a chance to win the CES swag bag. From CES 2010, I’m Tom Merritt, until next time.
