New tablets, real estate and the open Web

Can big tech players agree on new standards?

Wow — there were a bunch of new tablets introduced at CES 2011! The International Consumer Electronics Show is an annual trade show held in Las Vegas that has been around for decades.

The exhibition is typically home to new product releases and cutting-edge previews. The show draws huge crowds, and last year’s event saw more than 120,000 attendees.

There was a plethora of tablets showcased this year running different platforms, including: Android 3.0 ("Honeycomb"), Windows 7 and BlackBerry.

Honeycomb is the third and latest version of the Android operating system. Previous versions included Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo and Gingerbread. If you think these operating systems sound delicious or read like a dessert menu, you are correct.
