So what’s this we hear about the CES becoming an ‘irrelevant’ event? With the recently concluded CES 2012, there were a total of 153,000 attendees who witness over 20,000 new product launches. If this isn’t successful enough, we don’t know what else is anymore.

But regarding who dominated the event last week, the recognition goes, hands down, to Google for their Android. In fact, it has been growing stronger every year at CES. It just goes to show that we believe Rafe Needleman (CNET) was right when he said next year’s event will be populated by Google devices. Considering the fact that there is a daily count of 700,000 Android activations, this is a huge possibility.

If you were at CES last week, you would have seen a number of new Android products that can got us excited! Apart from the usual smartphones and tablets, we also got to witness other amazing new technologies including the I’M Watch, Sony SmartWatch, waterproof Fujitsu smartphone and tablet, and even the Android based Google TV.  Pretty cool, huh?

Going back to the rumor about CES being ’irrelevant’, we think not. Who knows? Maybe Google will be using the future CES events to launch their new Android@Home experience. More on that soon!


What do you think? Is CES ‘irrelevant’ for you?
