CES Day 1 round-up: LG, Nvidia, QNX, and more

53

One of the fun things about CES is that we get to bring a good portion of the Mobile Nations team together. Being that we're out around the world, it's rare to have two of us in the same room, let alone 20. So we take that as an opportunity to do fun things, like in-person podcasts. Our first podcast came by way of Phil, Alex, Richard, and Andrew of Android Central. You can expect that at the close of each day we'll have another site's podcast up and running, giving WPCentral, iMore, and Smartwatch Fans a chance to jump onto the big fancy stage. Watch the podcast, and then let's get to the news.
