Live reports from the 2005 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Hot new phones from LG, Samsung, Motorola, Audiovox, and more!
CES - the Consumer Electronics Show - is one of the largest technology trade shows in the world. Every year in early January, the world's consumer electronics industry takes over Las Vegas, transforming it from Sin City to Gadget City.
Well... almost. Like last year, the Adult Entertainment Expo is being held at the same time, just down the street at the Sands Expo Center. But CES is growing so fast that next year CES will take over that space as well. Yes, really. One (very large) convention center is no longer enough to contain this massive tech extravaganza.
Cell phones have historically been a small part of CES. It used to be you could count on just a few new phones from Audiovox and Samsung, but now more companies seem to be getting in on the action. LG and Motorola are both expected to make a splash this year, as well as a few smaller companies. In an even bigger shift, carriers now seem to be stepping up to the plate, with Verizon expected to make a big announcement here before the week is done.
Throughout the week, Phone Scoop reported from all the major events, as well as the show floor, to bring you the most in-depth coverage anywhere of new cell phones and mobile phone technology at CES.
