CES 2009: 3 days until world's largest tech showSuperthin TVs from LG, Samsung and JVC at CES 2009
05 January 2009
An LCD TV claiming to be the world's thinnest and a 'revolutionary' laptop are among the new developments expected to be unveiled at the world's biggest tech show.
The Consumer Electronics Show 2009 (CES) opens in Las Vegas on January 8, when big-name electronics brands will be getting ready to showcase their latest gadgets.
Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED)
Sony unveiled its 11 inch Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) TVs at last year's show, and this year we are expecting to see a 40 inch model from Samsung.
Samsung has also announced that it will have an LCD TV on display, which it claims will be the world's thinnest.
LG is also claiming the world's thinnest LCD TV accolade this year with the LG LH95, while JVC is claiming to have the world's lightest LCD TV at the CES.
There are around 200 models featured in the Which? LCD and plasma TV review.
There has been a lot of speculation about the new laptop Sony has developed. Nothing has been confirmed as yet, but Sony claims that the new Vaio will 'revolutionise the way that we look at laptops'.
Results for several Sony Vaio laptops can be found in our laptop review.
LG 3G touchscreen watch
Other than TVs and laptops, a 3G touchscreen phone/wristwatch from LG has received some media coverage, as has a Kodak camera with a powerful 24x zoom and another 8Mp camera phone from Samsung (Samsung S8300 sliderphone).
Samsung already has two 8Mp cameraphones on the UK market: the Pixon and the Innov8. Both of these models feature in our mobile phone review.
The most powerful zoom on a digital camera in our camera report at present is the 18x zoom which features on the FZ18 and FZ28 Best Buys from Panasonic.
