Steve Ballmer to give keynote at CES 2010

Sign us up. The first keynote speakers for the 2010 CES show in Las Vegas have been announced, and Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is on top of the list, scheduled for Jan. 6.

He'll presumably trumpet Windows 7, which will have officially been out a little more than two months at that point. But there's also a shot that we'll get some Windows Mobile 7 news, with many of the rumors pointing toward an announcement on that front late this year or early 2010.

Now all we have to do is pay off some markers, get some injunctions lifted and learn to tell the difference between ... erm, never mind. Let's just say the feet should have given it away.

Steve Ballmer to give keynote at CES 2010


I hope I am a winner at random! If so, that Blue Ant speaker phone is mine!

Ballmer gives the best keynotes... His voice sounds like Chris Farley's "Matt Foley- Motivational Speaker" to me =)

I very much doubt that wm7 will feature, considering 6.5 isnt finalized yet. I would picture wm7 coming closer to 2011

Figures the one year I will not be going to CES.
I really enjoy the Keynotes and Steve would be a hoot!

Do a Youtube on Steve Balmer "developers, developers, developers. I thought he was going to have a heart attack.
He really get's into it.

this is pretty cool. You should think about attending a new kind of event I heard about at CES - check it out at theresaprizeforthat.com
