****Read our full coverage from CES 2011 in Las Vegas****

With Christmas behind us and the thank you notes written, spare a moment for the poor tech companies out there frantically trying to get their latest and greatest machines and technologies ready for what is the greatest showcase for consumer technology in the world.

Yes people it’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) time again and we here at TrustedReviews are currently readying ourselves for an onslaught of new products throughout a week in Las Vegas at the start of January. But we are happy to make the sacrifice if it means we can bring you good people the breaking news where it's happening. Reports, videos, first looks, hands-on reviews, interviews and much, much more will be coming your way on a daily basis from January 4 onwards. Indeed we will be bringing you more first-hand video than ever before, to get you as close as possible to the latest tech and gadgets.

We will be speaking to major manufacturers like Sony, Samsung, Asus, nVidia, LG, Panasonic and many more, as well as covering smaller companies making big announcements. Having covered CES 2010 and IFA 2010 in Berlin, we know our way around a trade show and will bring you all the exclusive news.

What to expect

CES 2010 was the year of the 3D television so what about 2011? It is more than likely going to be the year of the tablet, with over 50 different devices rumoured to be unveiled at the Las Vegas showcase. While Apple and Nintendo are the two big companies not at the party, pretty much every other major (and minor) company will be represented. For now we have put together some of the possible announcements that could be coming our way between 6 and 9 January.

3D

CES 2010 was when 3D in your home made a huge impact. At CES this year we expect to see even more 3D technology from improved 3D Blu-ray players, glasses-free 3D TVs, more 3D gaming - and possibly some 3D people too. As consumers begin to embrace 3D technology fully, CES 2011 could see it moving increasingly into the mainstream. And we'll see more 3D-enabled cameras and camcorders announced as well as digital photo frames with parallax barriers for viewing without glasses.

That HTC tablet looks distinctly 4:3 to me, which would seem to rule out 1280×720...?

I doubt the PSPhone will be announced until the MWC next month in Barcelona.





I hope that CES brings some decent tablet options. I've been considering a Archos or Cowon PMP for years, but one thing or another has always held me back. Even the cheapest current Android tablets are way better than what I was looking at 5 years ago and i'm tempted by them, but as well to wait for this first crop of Honeycomb devices to get something that can also double as a half decent computing companion as well.





My biggest wish is for cheaper faster Sandy Bridge PCs so that something like the Lenovo X201 Tablet or a 2 year old Sony Z series crashes from almost £2k to around £300-500. Why waste money on the latest computers, they are 10% faster and since i don't game I see no need for them. The only advantage to me for a new PC is battery life, but that's not enough to make me spend an extra few hundred pounds.
