Tablet computers, 3D TVs, and ereaders will dominate CES 2010

During this week's The Big Question podcast, Bill Detwiler discusses the big tech trends from CES 2010—smaller laptops and tablets, 3D TV, and e-readers.


The 2010 International Consumer Electronics Show officially starts today. And, over a hundred thousand vendors, retailers, press, and tech enthusiasts will swarm Las Vegas looking for the hottest gadgets and gizmos.

As a guess on this week's The Big Question podcast, I discussed the big trends to watch at CES 2010. The hottest of these seem to be 3D television, smaller laptops and tablet computers, and ereaders.

The Big Question is a joint production from ZDNet and TechRepublic co-hosted by TechRepublic Editor in Chief Jason Hiner and ZDNet Editor in Chief Larry Dignan.
