This morning's Verizon CES 2011 keynote was a bit of a let down. After all, we were expecting a grand announcement about Verizon's plans to shake hands with Apple. But, instead of a CDMA-compatible iPhone 4, users of the Verizon network can look forward to the debut of Motorola's very own Android tablet. The Xoom, as it's dubbed, will run Android 3.3--or, Honeycomb--and will feature a Tegra 2 SOC dual-core processor. It'll also have HTML 5 and Adobe Flash 10.2 compatability right out of the box.
Our friends over at our sister site, Maximum PC, got a chance to play with this upcoming tablet. Check out the video to see if this tablet is really the iPad killer Android's hoping for.
Thursday is when the public at large invades the Consumer Electronics Show, but most of the cool stuff was announced earlier this week, including a refreshed version of Microsoft’s Surface tabletop -- now with a price cut that still doesn’t make it affordable for us working stiffs.
Join the Mac|Life staff as we stand on the sidelines of the Verizon CES 2011 keynote and wait in anticipation for that Verizon iPhone announcement the rumor mill's been buzzing about since...well, since we can remember! The keynote will be live at 8:30AM PST/11:30AM EST.
If this year’s announcements at the Consumer Electronics Show are any indication, Sony believes a shotgun blast to the face is better than a precise yet deadly incision at one of the body’s many weak spots -- the company announced a huge swath of product in every conceivable category, but apparently left most of their “Wow” at home.
Whether it's hardware, software or vaporwar, whatever Microsoft plans on announcing, we'll be live blogging the event straight from the CES show floor. Join us at 6:30PM PST/9:30 EST for our live "mock" of the Microsoft Keynote. The Mac|Life editors will be here weighing in with news and commentary, and taking your questions, too!

Oh, come on -- you can’t say you didn’t see this one coming. A Chinese manufacturer is exhibiting at CES 2011 and showing off a next-generation iPad 2 case, complete with a mockup of what everyone thinks Apple’s sequel will look like.
AT&T is firing on all cylinders at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, and most of their news is related to the company’s forthcoming 4G LTE plans. Among the companies listed as launching LTE devices in 2012 is Apple -- does that mean what we think it does?
Everyone this year is going to try to release an iPad killer. Seriously. It's on everyone's radar and chances are, they're going to fail. But we guess it doesn't hurt to dream big, to live large, to announce fanciful hardware that might just never see the market. Enter Lenovo and their dual purpose LePad. LeWhat?
AT&T is on stage at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on Wednesday with a flurry of announcements, including a new option for U-verse television customers to enjoy extra content on their iPads.
