Today there are 165 certified USB SuperSpeed products, and a lot of products that haven’t yet been certified. Here’s an interview with a representative of the USB Implementers Forum about what it means for devices to get a USB SuperSpeed certification.
The Sata-IO committee launched the new Universal Storage Module open standard at CES 2011, it’s a standardized Sata connector slow for devices like desktops, even laptops, media players and TVs to allow for full speed data transfers and one standard for the shape of 2.5″ removable hard drives. This GoFlex design from Seagate allows support for USB 2, USB 3, Firewire and any future connector that might come out, yet maxing out data transfer speed at the speed of Sata and of the spinning hard drive that comes inside. This video also features some description of Seagate’s Mementus XT hybrid hard drive product that speeds up OSes that can benefit from faster Flash based load times in combination with cheaper larger hard drive storage.
Kodak releases a new bunch of compact pocket video cameras, including the very compact Kodak Playfull targetted at women that go clubbing, Kodak PlaySport Zx5 which is waterproof and shock proof, and the PlayTouch which has a 3″ touch screen and external microphone input.
This is a pocket HD camcorder with a built-in qvga projector, it’s on the market for about $299. Find more informations here.
Acer is also one of the major companies launching Tegra2 ARM Cortex-A9 powered Android Tablets. This one seems to have a 1280×800 10.1″ capacitive touch screen, 1GB RAM, 2mpixel front and 5mpixel back cameras, 4G LTE compatible and should be upgraded to Honeycomb when it releases in the next few months.
Similar to the ViewSonic G-Tablet, this one is to be sold and supported by ViewSonic directly while the G-Tablet is supported by US merchants. I try to ask the ViewSonic representative what ViewSonic is doing to allow for alternative Android UI, firmware updates and more.
MSI is nearing release of their Android tablet series, here is the WindPad 100A prototype. It’ll run the Nvidia Tegra2 processor and have MSI’s custom Android UI.
I have uploaded 66 of my CES 2011 videos here on ARMdevices.net thus far, and I still have about 40 videos to upload and publish during the next few days. Yup, I beat my previous record at CES 2010 where I only filmed 72 videos.
What do you think about the quality of those videos? I appreciate all comments.
I have now arrived back in Denmark Europe where I can now continue to upload and publish the remaining 40 CES videos during the next few days, and then I’ll post my top-10 CES gadget video lists. So please check back here for more CES videos to still be posted during the next few days.

Aigo is a Chinese company who has been making portable media players for a while and now they are doing this capacitive 7″ Android tablet, it’s powered by Qualcomm MSM7227 ARM11 processor, comes with built-in 3G CDMA modem for around $450 unlocked retail price. So it is cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy Tab, but it’s also using a cheaper 600mhz ARM11 processor.
