It isn't much secret that COMDEX turned out to be extremely disappointing this year. The close proximity to Computex, the low attendance rate (under 40,000) and new management all contributed to what could be the last COMDEX Las Vegas for some time. Fortunately for us, COMDEX did act as a prelude for CES (Consumer Electronic Show), which will kick off in January. This gave us a wonderful opportunity to get a sneak peak at what manufacturers will show us in January, particularly concerning LCDs.
Today, we have more than one treat for the display addicts. Our first surprise came when we bumped into the super-hyped, super-secretive Liebermann Inc in the OCZ hospitality suite. We also got to see the usual players: Samsung, NEC-Mitsubishi, Sharp, as well as some representatives from Quanta and LG Philips LCD. All in all, we brought together 3 days of display showcases into one quick cross section for our LCD coverage. Read on to find out what we thought was hot on this year's show floor.
