With doors opening for CES this morning, another wave of announcements has hit our inbox, one of which is from Google. In the post, Google announced new partners for its Android TV and Google Cast audio/speakers products that should deliver options later in 2016. (more…)
Sony is hosting just about the last of the CES Press Day events and the whole show kicks off right now (5PM Pacific). We, honestly, have no expectations for this event, but there could be a sprinkling of mobile here and there.
We’ll see TVs and maybe some new Walkman or audio products and a camera or two and maybe even a tablet or phone. OK, the tablet and phone seem unlikely, but you just never know. Maybe some VR?
Whatever they show, you can watch its unveiling at the live stream below. (more…)
This week at CES, HTC introduced the 2nd generation developer edition of the Vive VR system, the Vive Pre. With an upgraded design, more suited for comfort while wearing, as well as a front-facing camera, HTC will be seeding an additional 7,000 units to developers to help bolster its ecosystem before the product’s launch in April of 2016.

Moments before Samsung took the stage at CES for its 2016 press day event, the Korean electronics company announced new variants of its Gear S2 Classic watch line. In February, you will be able to buy the Gear S2 Classic with either an 18K rose gold or platinum case.
Samsung didn’t announce pricing, but I’d imagine with those kinds of metals, they’ll be significantly more expensive than the $350 you currently pay for the regular Classic.
Again, the new Gear S2 Classic options launch in February. (more…)
Press day at 2016 CES is far from over, with Samsung up next on the big stage. Their live event kicks off at 2PM Pacific (5PM Eastern) if you are interested in the goods that this Korean giant has to show off for the coming year.
Like with LG’s event, we aren’t live blogging this because we don’t expect there to be much in terms of Android products. While we love a good fridge with a giant display on it, auto-opening doors, TV’s designed by goofy-haired artists, and ridiculously fancy washers and dryers, those aren’t exactly what we are known for covering.
So, sit back and enjoy the live stream that we have included above along with us.
Fossil announced the newest addition to its Q connected wearable lineup this morning, the Q54 Pilot. Unlike a normal smartwatch with a digital display, the Q54 Pilot features a traditional, analog look. When synced with your smartphone via Bluetooth, the watch is able to deliver buzz notifications and LED indicators for when a favorited contact is attempting to get a hold of you. (more…)
LG always kicks off CES press day (well, after Ford’s short show earlier) with an 8AM Pacific slot that gives the company the opportunity to get on the board early. That means they show off a bit of everything from their portfolio, like new appliance lines, whatever new TV OLED tech they have come up with, and new Android products. (more…)
