In the News It's the beginning of the year, so the Consumer Electronics Show is currently in full swing in the awesome city of Las Vegas. The thing is though - there's so much, pardon my Dutch, crap being announced it's hard to keep up. I have yet to see a single interesting thing to come out at CES so far, and I have little hope the next few days are going to be any better. That NVIDIA mobile gaming thing is mildly interesting, but as usual - no price, no release date. The Verge is spending loads of money on CES, so it has excellent coverage going on. Let's have a contest: if three months from now any of you can name three products announced at this year's CES (without cheating), I will force myself to use iOS for a week.

The high powered gaming consoles rarely do well, the only two hand helds that have done quite well are the various incarnations of the gameboy and the DS, both by nintendo.

Don't think of it as a competitor to the 3DS - think of it as one of those cheap, Chinese emulation handheld devices with some serious horsepower underneath. This'll be like a GP2x on steroids, and it has an HDMI port. I might actually be able to play Smash TV at full speed on a portable device, with two analog sticks. Personally, I can't wait ;)

They're also showing off a sweet looking 10" Visio Android tablet with Tegra 4 that's lighter than the Nexus 10, and actually running stock Android 4.2. If you're tired of only having Nexus Android devices to choose from, this is a big plus.

Seems that companies like Visio and Nvidia are actually pimping stock Android as a feature now. I can see companies going forward putting 'we stopped crippling Android with our shitty bloatware' as a bullet point on the boxes of their phones and tablets ;)
