Motorola wants to know if you're ready to "skip a generation" at the CES
Motorola's web site now features a countdown timer that is counting down toward the manufacturer's event at the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas on January 5th. The page asks the question, "Are you ready to skip a generation?" which is a subtle hint about what the company will be showing off at the CES. It is expected that NVIDIA's dual-core Tegra 2 processor will be at the heart of some of Motorola's new products.

The Motorola Olympus and the Motorola Etan are expected to show off dual-core processing in a pair of Android smartphones for Motorola and Verizon respectively. That doesn't rule out a smartphone being displayed for Sprint and/or T-Mobile. The dual-core, Honeycomb powered Motorola Everest/StingRay tablet that Andy Rubin carried around at the D: Dive into Mobile conference a couple of weeks ago should also be attracting a crowd at the show.

With the promise of a speedy new processor breathing fresh life into both the handset and the tablet industry, this time what happens in Vegas will get spread around the globe quickly.
