CES 2014: What to expect

When one thinks of Las Vegas, mobile gadgets are far from the first thing that comes to their mind. They're probably not even in the top five list. But as any devoted geek should know, for the past 15 years, Sin City has been the host for one of the world's largest technology trade shows – the Consumer Electronics Show, or CES for short. 

During the event, which is set to officially begin on January 7, 2014 (though announcements will be happening starting today), both major and not-so-major electronics manufacturers will get together under one roof to showcase their latest products and innovations. And to no surprise, many new smartphones and tablets get announced each year at CES, which is why we've always followed the show with a great dose of interest. 

Now, while CES is an event that gets a lot of attention from the media, prior to its launch, there's usually very little information as to what exactly is going to be unveiled. However, there's plenty of leaks for us to analyse and use to make our predictions. In fact, the rumor mill has presented enough information for us to compile a list of smartphones, tablets, and other smart products that we will likely see at CES 2014. Flick through the slideshow below to learn more!

Sony, lg and Samsung are quite good in the camera department. At least this year they all squashed the iPhone when it came to camera. Now sammy needs a lot of work on smoothing out their touch wiz and also making it more eye candy. Sony needs to slim down their phones and also improve on their screen tech. It always sounds good on paper but looks awful in person. Lg just needs marketing. All they need to do is improve on the g2 with spec upgrades and just market the hell out of the phone. As for HTC beauty is not everything. Drop that crap camera and learn to add big batteries in your phones. You are not apple with loyal fans who don't care about battery life. Less a forget, sammy you don't need to focus on metal bodies on your phones. Just improve your software and I swear the s5 will kill an iPhone before it is even released but if you don't the media is going to kill your s5 before it even goes on sale.

Jeez how time flies... we're already back to CES and it seems like the one for 2013 happened yesterday. I hope there's a strong showing this year as last year's show was kinda weak... well compared to years past.

Alcatel idol x+ for $330, I can't ask for any more. I am really tired of popular OEMs charging arms and legs for their devices. Half of it for the brand logo and the other half for the device itself. I can't wait to order mine on 15th January.

May be the first time i'm willing to pay 600+ for a phone since im locked with the G2. Hoping for a next gen HTC One with a big batter, processor don't care it's proof that it doesn't matter for the most part. A better camera would be nice too since my G2 has a great camera

Things I'm looking forward to from CES 2014 is maybe Sony's new line up of phones, New asus padfone (hopefully a glimpse of the one they're releasing in the US, I hope Oppo makes an appearance for the Find 7 lol. I used to look forward to huawei & others but realized they usually never make it to the US lol.

Ah yes, Las Vegas. What a gorgeous city. I wish I can go there, but it's too expensive.

Have you ever been to Vegas? The strip is the only nice place to be. Everything else is very dirty. The city is also quite poor. It's nice to walk around but the phrase, "look, but don't touch" comes to mind.

The strip isn't actually in Vegas

Ouch, I feel bad for you. They offered free registration in and around October. I paid $0 (not including the plane ticket and hotel of course). Of course, my $100 is probably going down the black hole called a "casino" anyways.

Sony Xperia Z2! No? Oppo Find 7! No? Okay. :( But still, I'm excited to see what manufacturers will surprise us in CES.

Sony released the Z1 three months ago if I'm not wrong, so it's not a "just released" anymore.

You're right... 3 months ago... But which phones successor comes in three months? Even 6 months is soon for that...
