Las Vegas Nevada is the home to plenty of big acts and also this years home to one more event with the 2014 C.E.S is being held in the desert city. This is one of the biggest computer conventions of the year and frenzies for the newest models odd devices that have managed to get a computer stuck in them will only drive geeks mad with anticipation. For years have the industry been showing that PC’s are dead and mobile PC is where the future is, though this notion seemed to forget about the education and business sections of the economy that need full computers for their duties.
The holidays have only just past and their are already new devices that are better than the ones we unwrapped from holiday wrapping paper days earlier. This is just how the market works these days, as to try to drive the industry and our pockets into a frenzy of spending to meet the needs of having some sort of status with a device that has a manufacture date newer than the one we just had. Personally rooting my Android devices I have found that it’s price point meets the longevity of the value I get from the device a whole lot longer when I do.
T-Mobile looks to release their final “4th Phase” in their plan to gain a dominant foot in the mobile service industry. This could help drive the market in a cheaper solution for consumers and the chance to get more data for your buck, while not being locked into a 2-year agreement. A rumor is going around with bloggers that it could be possible that T-Mobile will give a $350 credit to users who will switch from other services such as AT&T or Verizon, which would cover the early termination fee they would endure otherwise.
Samsung is looking to show off 2 handsets in the Galaxy Round & the Samsung Galaxy S5 in this years CES event. The Samsung GS5 is said to have an all metal body, 16MP camera, 64-Bit chip and 2K resolution. Although other rumors have show that this phone won't be talked about until MWC 2014. The Galaxy Round however will most likely be released now, as reports show that Samsung smartphones have declined in sales recently, especially with so many devices having been released since the Galaxy Note 3 and GS4.
Finally it’s announced the Samsung is releasing the 110-Inch Curved TV in Las Vegas this year, which has been said to be the “most curved TV in the world”. Whether this has any effect on the viewing quality and experience that a user may gather is yet to be seen, but at least that will be an interesting aspect to find out if nothing else happens to be in the 2014 CES event.
