CES does not slay the iPad

The 2011 Consumer Electronics Show has seen a range of tablets from Sony, Motorola, RIM, Samsung et al but all are finding it difficult to challenge the dominance of Apple's iPad. Rivals are already playing catch-up, especially after Apple made a bold move to price the iPad at $500. The range of tablets using Google's Android software is a reminder that Apple will not have the market to itself. Highlights at the CES included: 3D and internet TV models; a robotic telescope that automatically aligns itself; a set of video goggles that can capture and share an athlete's field of view on the world; a personal energy generator using kinetic energy; a new, tiny mobile digital TV receiver device for iPad and a robot that gives you a massage.

In the meantime thousands of gamers flocked to Chiba, Tokyo to try out the Nintendo 3D enabled DS console.
