Consumers Wowed by Samsung at CES Summit
According to a recent report, Korean-based hardware producer Samsung appears to have drawn the most interest amongst those following the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The CES summit is one of the biggest tech-enthusiast shows of its kind and only happens once a year, every January.
The findings in the report are a bit surprising, given that Samsung made little mention of tablet computers, which happens to be one of the most dominant topic at this year's CES. Instead, Samsung focused most of its effort at touting upcoming television technology, including 3-dimensional TVs, as well as new models of plasma and LCD TVs.
Industry analysts Webtrends are behind the study. They use various traditional and social media outlets -- including tweets, social networking sites, and blog posts -- to gauge interest in tech companies at CES. (Source: sfgate.com)
Samsung "Smart TVs" Generate Huge Interest
According to Webtrends, a great deal of interest was generated by what the company is calling a new line of "Smart" TVs, which can connect to a WiFi network, allowing for easier transfer of information as well as displaying data over multiple screens.
Futuristic Surface Computer Fascinates
Samsung also aroused a lot of fanfare with the unveiling of a 4G Galaxy S smartphone and a Surface table (no, that's not a typo) -- a computer that looks as though it's been pulled right out of a movie. With more than 50 simultaneous touch points that recognize fingers, hands and objects placed on-screen, it's a fascinating new technology. (Source: buzzbox.com)
All in all, it was a great week for Samsung. That said, Webtrends did make one discovery no one at CES will like: despite not even being at the show, Apple's iPhone and iPad were the most talked-about smartphone and tablet devices on blogs and social networking sites over those same seven days.
