Early this morning, Vizio kicked their CES off with a bang by announcing a handful of new products – a 10″ tablet powered by the newly announced Tegra 4, a 7″ tablet powered by a Tegra 3, a phone with a 5″ 1080p display, and another with a 4.7″ 720p display. The phones will head to China and may never arrive here, but the tablets certainly have a chance at landing on your coffee table. (more…)
Mobile gaming has certainly taken the center stage so far at this year’s CES, as MOGA has announced their next line of portable gaming controller. The MOGA Pro Controller is much like the original, that went on that fire sale a couple of weeks back, but brings a few enhancements that should interest any of our mobile game diehards. (more…)
CES press day has begun! We’re here at LG’s event where we expect a bunch of products to be announced. If we look at past CES press events for LG, we saw everything from TVs to appliances to smartphones. This year should be no different, however, we are hoping that the handful of smartphone-related rumors come true.
We would love to see the Optimus G2, a device rumored to have a 5.5″ 1080p display and new Snapdragon S4 Prime processor. Beyond that beast, we may also see a device with a 4.7″ edge-to-edge display, along with a high-res 7″ tablet.
The event starts at 8:00AM Pacific. If we find a live stream, we’ll be sure to share it, otherwise tune into our liveblog which will have fun-filled photos and commentary. (more…)
NVIDIA’s newly announced Project Shield will likely be the talk of the week here at CES, unless of course, someone else has a massive gaming surprise up their sleeve. With its Tegra 4 processor, 5″ HD display, impressive cloud gaming technology, and stock Android operating system, this device is the ultimate mobile gamer’s dream. And actually, it may be any gamer’s dream device, as it works to create an all-encompassing gaming experience from Android to PC and from handheld device to TV.
In this highlight video above, you get to see the barebones side of Project Shield.
Depending on price, are you ready to buy one?
This evening, NVIDIA took the stage and announced the all new Tegra 4 processor. Although, it wasn’t their new chipset that had everyone excited tonight. NVIDIA CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang announced Project SHIELD (although he did slip and accidentally called it Project Thor at first) which is a completely portable full gaming system that supports Android and PC games thanks to cloud-based services.

When Jen-Hsun Huang, NVIDIA’s CEO, took the stage tonight at the Palms Casino for their CES press event (our live blog), he had to admit that the Tegra 4 was one of the worst kept secrets in the mobile industry. Even still, his series of demos with a prototype tablet and Project Shield gaming system, both of which were running the T4, blew the crowd’s minds. It’s official – the Tegra 4 is the “world’s fastest mobile processor.” (more…)
We really aren’t sure what to expect tonight, but NVIDIA always puts on a good show at CES. Any chance we see the Tegra 4? Maybe another ultra cheap tablet? Some other kind of surprise?
You’ll find a live blog below, but we also have a live video embed of the event so you can watch along with us. Get ready! (more…)
