CES 2008 is Around the Corner!

CES 2008 is Around the Corner!

The 2008 CES (Consumer Electronics Show) is around the corner and Audioholics is once again poised to provide unparalleled coverage of the Las Vegas event. We've been covering the show since 2004 and have quickly become the premier source for the latest product and show info. It occurred to us that this is the first time we've covered the CES show since we updated the site last year. As a result, there are now several different ways to get your CES "fix" and ensure that you are the most knowledgeable person in your neck of the woods. I mean somebody has to have the skinny on all the latest consumer electronics products - it might as well be you!

Here's how it works: Audioholics sends a crack team of reporters to the show - this year it's Clint DeBoer, Gene DellaSala, Tom Andry and Anthony Leotta. We scour the show floor for the latest products, take photos and bring you the details, specs and skinny about what's new, upcoming and downright cool.

Each evening, while everyone else is enjoying themselves at parties and Vegas Shows, we post our articles and show product coverage online. Last year we had around 125 pages of show coverage by the end of Day 3. Not bad for a gang of caffeine-fueled reporters operating on 3 hours of sleep per night!

This year there are several new ways you can access the CES 2008 show coverage:

  • Keep yourself parked on the home page and reload frequently - we'll be updating throughout the day as well as in the evening.
  • Visit our dedicated CES 2008 Show page. You won't see anything until January 7th, but on the morning of the show we'll release some product info that we've been holding under embargo.
  • Use this custom RSS feed which should be absolutely filled with the latest CES products, technology and gadgets once the show begins.

And that's not all we have in store for our readers. AVRant will also be doing podcasts from the event, with live video feeds. This will be the first time we've done this on a larger scale (with video) but we're confident it will be entertaining (at the least) and certain to fill you in on some of the things which impressed us that day on the show floor.

If this sounds like fun, then please don't miss out on all the great info that is going to pour through our pages next week. CES is just about here and we hope you can be a part of it with us!

I guess announcements on upgraded pre/pros was skimpy/non-existent since nothing was reported, eh?

Scratch that - when I wrote that article, I was converting from Yen to $ and came to $1800. Turns out it will cost more like $2500 according to Sony.
Yikes. It would be interesting if someone used the average price points for LCD or Plasma tv's (from say 27“ to 60+”) and then applied that sliding scale model to OLED tv's to give a “rough” idea of what the larger panels would cost in comparison. I know this logic is inherently flawed but geez, $2500 for an 11" tv? pfffff.
Do you get the feeling these guys are just showing off for it's own sake?

I'd love to see this tech mature but I have a feeling that no one is going to want to invest in it enough to get the infrastructure to the point were they can be produced cheaply. With the majority of the public rolling their eyes at me when I tell them that there is a difference between SD and HD, I can't believe that we're going to convince them that a high contrast ratio is reason enough to spend 5x on an OLED display.

So what kind of price differential are we talking about here? Did Samsung actually have an MSRP for the 31" model? If mass production were to indeed start in 2010 of mid to large sized models, what price point is Samsung shooting for and what was the maximum size they were touting?

Sony just released their first 11" OLED at $1800
Toshiba isn't going to release any at all based on manufacturing costs

Samsung didn't talk price (heck, they didn't have a price tag on a single item in their booth) but many times these tech showcases are just stuff they are exploring.

“there is ample evidence that OLED will never come down in price enough to be a serious contender against LCDs.”
