CES 2013: Collision of Touchscreens Big and Small

See on Scoop.itIntel Free Press

 

Technology analysts predict convergence of smartphones, tablets and touchscreen computers will capture attention at CES 2013.

 

kenekaplan‘s insight:

Rob Enderle, principal analyst at Enderle Group, anticipates attention at CES 2013 will center on two points of conflict. “You’ve got the 7-inch tablet and the 4-inch smartphone that are starting to ram together on the one end and we’ve got the 13.3-inch notebook and the 11.6-inch tablet ramming together on the other end,” he said.

This year, convergence will really happen with notebooks and tablets, said Enderle. “A lot of people are arguing that you can get one device that can do both things,” he said, referring to new Ultrabook computers that convert into tablets.

John Jackson, vice president at IDC, expects to see the halls of CES full of what he calls conver

gence experiments. “Convertibles beg the question of the extent to which tablets will remain a distinct or discretely identifiable category over time or whether or not they’re just a logical evolution of the PC,” he said.

Solar or Light Powered Computer Chip

This is a mind bender, every time I look at this my imagination runs wild. Computer chips have kept up with Moore’s Law and performance has improved year over year for decades, but so has the energy consumption, which has dropped significantly over the years. Would be cool if compute devices could be powered by light, friction from your pocket or finger tapping.
