Verizon Iphone, (AP) – Gadgets revealed at the annual International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas flop most often they pop. The event this year, however, yielded numerous products that are required to make a difference for years to come.
Microsoft provided a glimpse at a radically new version of Windows, Verizon has demonstrated the first consumer gadgets to a wireless network that is faster in many cases of wired broadband, and many manufacturers have found tablet computers with the ability to Apple iPad give a run for its money.
The show itself, the largest exhibition in the Americas, was back in high form after two lean years. An estimate pre-show participation in more than 126,000 people, and the crowd was the presence high above, but perhaps not as many as 141,150 people who showed in 2008.
Here are the facts do not miss the show, which ended Sunday:
Touch Screen Tablet PCs packed entertainment, such as brand names, large and small showed a lot of devices to compete with Apple Inc. iPad.
From the material standpoint, companies touted features IPAD does not like front and rear cameras to-face video chat and take high-definition video and the ability to run on wireless carriers and new future high speed networks, so called 4G.
Regarding software, the next version of Google Inc. Honeycomb ‘s Android software seemed a popular choice. Many of the tablets unveiled – as Xoom Mobility Motorola Inc. – will be held in the honeycomb, which are more oriented pills those current versions of Android, which has its roots in smart phones and their small screens.
Some tablets found work in the Microsoft Corp. Windows PC 7, though. And the playbook based business 4G, which comes from BlackBerry maker Research In Motion Inc., works with RIM’s own software.
- First consumer Verizon 4G devices.
Verizon Wireless turned on its 4G network in December, with limited coverage, but data speeds unmatched. The network uses fresh, deserted the spectrum and is designed from scratch to carry data, resulting in connections that in many cases beat the speed of DSL and cable modems. (In the long term, with more people on the network, Verizon provides download speeds averaging 5 to 12 megabits per second, comparable to non-premium cable modems.)
For now, the only plug-in notebook modems may benefit, but the show, Verizon announced smartphones from Motorola, LG Electronics Inc., HTC Corp. and Samsung Electronics Co. is scheduled to arrive in the first half of year, and two tablets.
However, Verizon quickly won its own thunder by inviting journalists to a second press conference Tuesday in New York, less than a week after her big revelation in Las Vegas. It is generally believed that Verizon will announce it will begin selling the iPhone from Apple Inc., now available in the U.S. exclusively through rival AT & T Inc. The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that this is the case.
AT & T $ is building its own 4G network, and plans to be operational this summer. In the meantime, he told the show he starts calling its 3G network “4G”.
- Windows running on cell phone chips.
The computers looked semi-finished, with exposed components, and ran what looked like plain vanilla “Windows 7. Under the hood, even if these computers have components that signal a major change for Microsoft and the PC industry.
Instead of running on processors from Intel Corp. or Advanced Micro Devices Inc., the pillars of Windows PCs in three decades, these computers were running on chips for mobile phone-style designs based on ARM Holdings PLC. This could mean that laptops and tablets with the battery life longer and give Windows a better chance of gaining ground in emerging tablet computers.
Of Apple Inc. hit iPad tablet runs on an ARM-based chip, which is part of the reason; it can take 10 hours on one charge. Microsoft did not say when an ARM version of Windows might be available, but indicated that it is at least a year.
- Intel and AMD strike back.
Intel and AMD, whose processors are the “brains” of PCs, has unveiled new chips with significant design changes, partly to help repel the threats of tablets and smartphones. The idea is to make traditional, low-cost computers using their chips more competitive with mobile devices.
New designs promise to make computers more graphics-intensive tasks and video playback. Intel and AMD are doing this by bringing graphics capabilities, traditionally managed by a separate chip on silicon as the main computer, the general-purpose processor. This means that data move faster.
An additional advantage is the lifetime of the battery, an important quality if these chips must be competitive with those used in tablets. With functions on the same chip, the power parties need to talk to each other is reduced.
- TV 3-D glasses with movie.
Last year’s big new thing in televisions, 3-D, failed as manufacturers had hoped. A problem could be cumbersome, expensive glasses, sets need batteries. This year, LG Electronics Inc. is trying a different perspective on 3-D, with light, cheap glasses of the type used in movie theaters.
Vizio Inc. already sells such a set, and Samsung Electronics Co. has announced it is working on similar technology. In the version LG and Vizio technology, the screen resolution is halved, but not everyone will notice. The flicker effect sometimes produced by the batteries is missing glasses, glasses and lighter also does not darken the image as much.
- Free TV on the go.
TV signals are adding to their towers that are designed to be picked up by portable gadgets such as small televisions, laptops and cell phones.
We do not know the public interest will be in this technology. A previous attempt to distribute television signals subscription gadgets failed for lack of interest. But policymakers, including gadget Audivox and LG are moving forward, offering consumers a range of “Mobile DTV gadgets this year. They range from portable television sets of plug-in antennas IPAD.
A major obstacle to technology is that cell phone carriers are not interested in selling phones with mobile digital TV receivers.
- The high-speed color printing.
It’s not often that a new printing technology arises. After all, both inkjet and laser printing have been with us for decades. Now a startup, Memjet promises a significant twist on the inkjet printing. This technology allows a desktop printer to spit out one page per second in color at low cost.
Instead of having a printhead that moves back and forth on the page, it has a head that is fixed and covers the entire page. The printer should be on the U.S. market this year with an undisclosed partner, and price around 600.
