With new Android tablets on display everywhere at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2012) in Las Vegas, there’s good news for retailers this year. Ecommerce software developer Ability Commerce has reported that its full-service clients saw an explosion in holiday revenue stemming from Android devices, as consumers bought everything from videogames to electronics in record numbers using mobile devices instead of the traditional PC. Mobile shopping overall was a huge success as retailers experienced increased visits, transactions and revenue across all of the major operating systems. The Galaxy Note tablet is shown in the video below from CES 2012, and is sure to introduce even more consonumers to mobile shopping, as well as gaming.


LAS VEGAS -- Major product launches from more than 3,100 exhibitors and keynotes from the leaders of Qualcomm, Mercedes and Intel launched the 2012 International CES on Tuesday. Owned and produced by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), CES 2012, the world's largest tradeshow for consumer technology, runs through Friday, January 13 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Gaming was also prevalent with Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft all showing content. NVIDIA continues to push portable gaming and tablet pricing with Tegra as seen in the video below.


The Consumer Electronics Show 2012 kicks off in Las Vegas in just a few days, and anyone who's anyone in the electronics world will be at the event, showcasing new tablets, TV's and other consumer technology.  That said, expect video games to have a presence as well, with Nintendo attending the event and Sony showing off its PlayStation Vita.  But will there be hints in regards to the next level of video game consoles?  Perhaps...


The CES show, which is held every year in Las Vegas, is primarily held to show off the latest in gadgets and electronics, and not really considered much of a "game show", unlike the Game Developers Conference and E3.  However, some game companies still take part, just to show off how far game development has come.  And this year, Nintendo will be making a trip to the event, bringing its upcoming Wii U system with it.


“Welcome. And congratulations. I am delighted that you could make it. Getting here wasn’t easy, I know. In fact, I suspect it was a little tougher than you realize.” Alright, alright, I didn’t write that. That charming prose belongs to Bill Bryson’s A Short History of Nearly Everything (2003). Awesome book. But in theme, these few lines apply greatly to your predicament in Rage, id Software’s heavily anticipated first-person shooter for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.


This year at we'll be scouring every inch of the E3 2011 exhibition hall floor to give you a glimpse of what the event is really all about: booth babes.  Okay, we know it's not really about booth babes. It's the video games that they're standing in front of.  We're going to be covering all the big reveals and hidden gems from the world of gaming and electronics throughout the next week.  And what better way to share the best of E3 with you than through lots and lots of pictures? 


With sales of console and handheld systems having stalled, the attention of the video game industry has turned to the fast-growing cell phone video game market, according to the market research firm iSuppli Corp. With their ubiquity and ownership by a large segment of an electronics-enamored public, mobile phones equipped to play games and other forms of electronic entertainment vastly outnumber their rival dedicated gaming platforms.
