Liveblog: Samsung's CES 2013 keynote
We already saw Samsung's press-conference here at CES 2013, but now it's time for the company's keynote! To tell you the truth, we were a bit disappointed by the press-conference, because we didn't see much in the way of mobile, but who knows, this might be our lucky day!

Join us as we bring you live updates from the keynote of Samsung's president, Dr. Stephen Woo. Will we see something new by the South Korean giant? Stay with us and find out!

The event will begin at 9AM PST | 11AM CST | 12PM EST | 5PM GMT.

12:28And it looks like we're about to wrap up with this. Dr. Woo is back on stage for closing remarks.
12:28And he's done!!! The loudest round of applause yet!! Standing ovation for this.
12:27And now he's circling back about how tech in this day and age can make change in the world. From energy consumption to healthcare.
12:22He's moving away from tech a little bit to talk about recent gun related tragedies; such as what happened in Colorado & Connecticut.
12:16"I miss driving. Because when you're president, you never drive again."
12:15No doubt, the Pres is passionate about his foundation & the well being of others. How tech can really benefit everyone.
12:13South Korea offers better data speed than what's given here in the US. IN fact, the US ranks 14th overall, though,we're a big country.
12:12The Pres is going into detail about the need to keep up the tech infrastructure in the US.
12:10"I sent the first email out into space" to John Glenn actually.
12:09"I did what I can do to keep the Internet free"
12:08"When I was president, the average cell phone weighed 5 pounds. There was a total of 5 web sites back then." Funny guy!
12:07Bill Clinton is in the house!!!!
12:06Lots of humanitarian work surrounding hope for children.
12:05Now it's a quick video showing former pres bill Clinton and mentions how hope for children operates.
12:04Dr. Woo is going into Samsung's "Hope for Children" initiative. How tech is needed in various fields like education & health.
12:00And now it's a quick video on the various Microsoft relatd products relying on the components. Nothing too fancy this time here.
11:59It doesn't look like a phone though.
11:59They're showing a prototype flexible OLED that's running windows phone.
11:58So far, he's talking about how Sammy's components are used on a variety of windows 8 related products. Laptops, tablets, & smartphones.
11:56Microsoft's Eric rudder is on stage to talk about how all this new stuff relates to them.
11:55Wow!! It's absolutely cool to see the possibilities about flexible OLEDs, but so far no actual device.
11:55Absolutely looks nice in this video. Another one shows off how the screen unfurls. Neato!!!
11:54They have this device that has a display on the outside, but folds open to an even larger screen. Looks pretty solid.
11:54Quick video showing off the possibilities of the bendable displays.
11:53They just showed off a few Youm prototype that flex and rely on plastic to bend. Lots of wows from the crowds. Interesting stuff!!
11:51Ohhhhh flexible OLEDS as well called Youm flexible
11:50They're calling this new display the "Green LCD."
11:50They're developing a new ten inch display that consumers 25% less juice. No specifics on it though.
11:49Of course, they're praising the best display on the market....the one of the Nexus 10 obviously.

Our best hopes will be for the 7" note.... I hope I can see trust happening, and at a good price 250+ too!

Actually Samsung introduced the 7" tablet concept, but yeah that works hopefully 100 cheaper than the iPad

Really when it comes to displays , Samsung is pushing the frontiers of innovation . People say that they earn a lot of revenue from plasticy phones but a lot of that profit goes into R& D .

i disagree that they are the frontiers if innovation. oleds have been around for a while. flexible oleds were shown by other companies like sony years ago. they are also not the first company to release an oled screen to the public, as sony also released one years ago. i see no innovation from sammy as of right now. and please no one say that the exynos 5 Octa is innovation because it isn't. its an evolution.

i see nothing to drool about when i see their phones. cheap feeling build quality. over saturated screen. boring looking UI.

the one thing i do think they are good about is their marketing
