CES Day 1: What I’ve seen so far

I managed to run the battery down on my camera so I'm back in my room for a few minutes. I decided to use the time to double check my photos and  post an update. I haven't written any of the posts yet; that's going to happen tonight. There's only so much time that the show floor is open so I have to make the most of it.I've got 3 booth visits with enough photos and notes that I can post: Aluratek, Vivitek, and Rockchip.

Aluratek announced a new tablet, 3 new ereaders, and a media player. One of the ereaders is from Gajah and the other 2 are the new LibreS. BTW, Ectaco also have the same new ereaders as the Libres.

Vivitek have the ereader that Delta Electronics built based on the Bridgestone QR-LPD screen tech. It's slow to refresh and whoever developed the software should be shot. I've got a video. BTW, someone from Crayola was there. They were interested in developing their own version of the 8" model.

The Rockchip booth was both a surprise and a delight. Do you know how 50+ tablets are supposedf to be at CES? At least 20 were in the Rockchip booth (and I am not joking). Look at this:

That's all for now.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
