CES 2014: Tablets and Smartphones

CES-2014-tablets-smartphonesThe market for mobile devices may be maturing, but that doesn’t mean the competition isn’t fierce and that there’s nothing new to be seen.

Intel (INTC) and Microsoft are expected to be giving Windows 8.1 tablets a push at CES 2014, while more manufacturers jump on the cheap Android tablet bandwagon. Also expect to see more hybrid devices like transforming ultrabook/tablet offerings as PC makers struggle to avoid being eclipsed by tablets.

Look for smartphone displays to get even higher resolution, while Samsung, LG and others are expected to show off their latest smartphone innovation: curved screens. Now that “big” has gone about as far as it can without looking ridiculous, curved screens may be a common sight on the CES 2014 floor and coming soon to your next smartphone.
