To really challenge the iPad, Google needs outlets that rival the Apple Stores where people can try out the goods; or price its tablet as cheap as Kindle so online buyers are willing to wait for delivery.

LAS VEGAS–Tomorrow, the CES press conference machine will whip us up into a lather and new phone announcements will zing out fast and furiously.

While we don’t always know precisely how the cards stack up, a combination of leaks, press day schedules, and common sense provide more than a hunch of how the game will play out.

Big phone or small tablet? That’s the question we originally asked of the Samsung Galaxy Note when we first beheld it last September. If you believe the signage festooning the entrance to the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, Samsung isn’t quite sure, either.

Motorola just released a brief video that cryptically hints at a new wireless power solution the company may announce at CES 2012.

The short titled “Stay Unplugged with Motorola” simply shows a sad cartoon-faced AC adapter shedding a lone, mournful tear. Why could Mr. Power Cord be so glum? Perhaps it’s because his old handset friends have outgrown their relationship and no longer visit often. Apparently once Motorola’s gadget set upgraded to newfangled wireless charging technology, it’s been a dark, dark world, at least for AC Power man here.
