Windows Phone Central at CES 2013

Windows Phone Central at CES 2013

We are less than 48 hours away from CES 2013 officially kicking off. In the past anticipation was high for new gadgets when CES was on the horizon. However, this year is a little different for the Windows Phone camp. Last year at CES we got our first look at the Lumia 900, but this year Microsoft will have a significantly smaller presence than it has had in the past, same goes for Nokia. We also aren't really expecting new hardware Windows Phone hardware from HTC or Samsung. So what then can you look forward to?

Could Verizon finally show off the Samsung Odyssey? Maybe AT&T will pick up the ATIV S and we'll definitely get a closer look at the Ascend W1 from Huawei.

While nothing makes your tech gland salivate like a new device, we'll probably also have accessories to get most excited about (excluding a long shot by Sprint). That may sound lame, but we're looking forward to seeing more add-ons for Windows Phone, gadgets and gizmos that include wireless charging, NFC magic, headphones, speakers, etc. You can be positive that we'll sniff out anything that might appeal to you from the showroom floor.

Outside of Windows Phone, we'll bring the best toys running Windows 8 in tablet, hybrid, and ultrabook form. If we think it's something interesting you can bet it will be on Windows Phone Central. With CES lacking in bonafide Windows Phone news, what exactly do you want to see? Let us know and we'll be sure to get all the photos and news for you.

Naturally, you'll want to check out the Windows Phone Central homepage for all the latest news and gadgets or use our awesome app. Alternatively, you can follow Dan (@daniel_rubino) and I (@samsabri) on Twitter for a first person view as the days go on. Like last year, the full Mobile Nations team will be in Sin City soaking up tech news and staying out of brothels as much as possible.

Windows Phone Central at CES 2013


I think you guys need to start covering windows related news as well not just windows phone. 
Anddroid central, imore and crackberry covers everything related to their domains not just phone related. So why dont you guys cover everything related to windows 8 as well?
I really want to see that happening becasue there is very less quality journalism related to windows 8.

Windows Central, yes! Metro is so deeply involved with our "3 screens", it totally makes sense to do this.

I am still looking for a Windows 8 (RT) Tablet. Choice here in Austria is very limited so far. The only tab easily available is the VivoTab. And that one is really expensive (~ € 600 without keyboard dock and € 729 with keyboard dock). So I am especially interested in news about tablets and their actual availability.

I want to know about WP7.8 update. Why everyone has forgotten old windows phone users? We brought the platform to life! no updates for us?

Yeah, it's 2013 and they told us of the update back in June of last year. I think it's fair to ask for some confirmed info from Microsoft. And not "coming soon."

I'm dying for a Nokia Tablet. I have Nokia WP8 and would love a Nokia Win8 Tablet. Their devices are built to last.

T-Mobile baby. My ? is what ever happened to the review? The unboxing came before Christmas and then nothing. Where's Rich?

I'd like to see some accesories for my white 920. Being a basic color, you can match it with many other shades, and the Start Tiles help enhance that. Would def like to see more than just the usual black or white cases, or at least something minimal and not so bulky. Will be scanning the homepage if you guys find anything. 

I'd love it if you guys looked for a hybrid running windows 8 that can handle online gaming type situations :) :D

Thats exactly want i was hoping for! Thanks for having a hawk eye like that! :D Almost got the Acer w700 since it was able to be just a screen :P

My #1 question is: where is the official Nokia case for the 920? Why has it been delayed so long? Thanks!

No new Phones, no new apps, no new games, no new dock stations -  nothing !!! Thanx for the worst service - Microsoft !!!!

Are we ever going to be able to send/receive voice messages over Xbox live on the Windows Phone? You can text, but directed to Xbox to listen to voice messages?

Sadly, this will be another disappointing event for WP with nothing of significance being announced. Best to focus on MWC for WP news.
