The biggest problem with watching TV on phones/tablets is supplying juice to those gorgeous displays that are coming out. The Kindle is unique in that it offers worldwide 3g service for free. How? Don't ask me. But for now it's black and white (but better in bright light). The large phones that are coming out are certainly eating into tablet space...

@goafrit: ditto! How ever, what do you see in consumer use patterns and the providers' marketing models? Take the Galaxy tab from Samsung -you need to get data subscription plan in most markets in the US. Whereas the Applie iPad users I see, most of them connect through WiFi though the 3G service is available (I have a 16Gig iPad that I only use with WiFi connection). @LarryM99: I think the synergy you seek in HANs are still far away! You probably saw couple of weeks ago that the powerline committees did not reach any agreement on interoperability. I personally don't see any merit in buying new gadgets costing hundreds of $$ for saving a few bucks in energy bills!! My existing WiFi router is just fine to network more devices in my home. If the economy improves, I am willing to upgrade my broadband & perhaps hookup a Femtocell in my house. CES is like a great candy shop for us engineers! I am sure going to enjoy looking but I don't think I am in any rush to buy these gadgets that I don't need, really! MP Divakar

I agree with #1 - it is already happening and this will be a commodity in coming months. Good article.

2011 CES should highlight the future technologies where the average person lives are touched. I think the LTE and hybrid networking will be among these.

One way or the other, it's nice to see some interest and excitement about CES. The last few years of that conference have been pretty dull. That's a good sign for the economy. I'm particularly interested in tablets, especially in conjunction with the standardization of home networking and control. We might finally see some serious synergy in home technology. Larry M.

I would love to see some technologies in the gesture recognition and advanced display systems.
