Are you gutted that you missed CES this year? Well, no worries, we’re at CES busy getting the latest scoop for you, so check out the latest news from CES below:
We know that Windows Mobile 7 should be this year, but the question was always “when”. Now according to Robbie Bach, Microsoft Entertainment & Device Division President, we might be able to see a demo of it as early as next month at Mobile World Congress (MWC). If that’s true, it’s certainly good news, especially since Google’s Android has been busy making waves all over the mobile scene, and Windows Mobile 7 will certainly be Microsoft’s attempt to get back into the game. Will Windows Mobile 7 be able to take on Apple’s iPhone and Google’s Android? We’ll have to wait and see, but the more competition, the better, right?
We see Google’s Android getting into cell phones, Internet tablets, and all sorts of devices, but you probably wouldn’t have thought you’d see it on a microwave and washer dryer, would you? That’s just what a company called Touch Revolution has done, and is probably using the technology to prove a point of what might be possible. With that in place, it would be quite possible to make a cooking app that will give you the suitable cooking settings for various dishes, or even a washing app that could help you manage your washing. Of course, it does seem a little extreme, but it’s all in the name of science, right?
This has been a big week for gadgets. We've seen the Nexus One launch, HP's new tablet and the Lenovo IdeaPad U1 shown off, and even a 152" 3DHDTV. Most of the convention's focus has been on tablets and big keynote addresses, but what I've found most ...

[CES 2010] Now this might be hot when it hits the market (hopefully) at the end of the year if Identity is able to find a mobile carrier (or carriers) as their partner(s). Touting to go up head-to-head against the iPhone, Identity hopes to price their MID phone at no more than $200 with a typical 2-year contractual agreement. It does look as though it comes with a full touchscreen display, although for those who are still uncomfortable with a virtual keyboard for typing emails and text messages, there is always the QWERTY keyboard that reveals itself when you slide the display sideways just like the Motorola Droid. Running on the Android OS, do you think this will be able to provide decent competition against the latest iPhone model by then? One thing that might change in its MID phone prototype in its final release would be a slightly smaller display as they ought to make room for the standard four-key row (Back, Menu, Home and Search shortcuts) that is a staple on all Android handsets to date.
[CES 2010] Identity seems pretty bent on the Android idea, which is a good thing since we would like to see more and more hardware manufacturers adopt Android to see what they can come up with for the mass market. The prototype Media CPE C1 was on display, where it can connect to your home network connection via WiMAX or Wi-Fi, and it doubles up as a digital photo frame with the added capability of offering media playback and support of Android widgets. Needless to say, it is equipped with a touchscreen display for you to navigate. No idea on when it will roll out, but we hope to see it hit the market before this year's holiday season is over for a pocket-friendly price.
By Andrew LiszewskiGPS devices have definitely come down in price over the years, but they’re still not at the point where you wouldn’t care if one was stolen from your vehicle. So the Maplock ensures that when you leave your car with a GPS unit still attached to the windshield, it will still be there [...]

[CES 2010] This is a hidden gem from the floors of CES, with Identity of Korea unveiling their SoIP S1 device. Currently in a prototype form factor, what you see here is meant to run on the Android operating system with it sitting squarely in your living room. Boasting a capability of supporting DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance), it will be able to play nice with compatible consumer electronic devices from 240 members within DLNA which ought to make it future-proof for a fair number of years. The display itself is touchscreen sensitive, and there is a handset placed in the cradle that can be picked up whenever you want to carry out a VoIP conversation, although you might most probably consider using the integrated webcam to carry out a video call instead. It remains connected to the Internet via a Wi-Fi router, and the touchscreen display will show off a variety of widgets and can even double up as a digital photo frame. The prototype on display is missing a credit card reader which will be implemented in the final version, where you will then be able to make online transactions with your credit card using nothing but a simple swipe. Other specifications are available in the extended post. Identity is currently looking for a mobile carrier to work with, and hope to see it roll out by the holiday season this year or early 2011.
