After a night of good times, good friends and a few (maybe more) good drinks, today was the BIG day… CES baby! Our crew was raring to get down to the Las Vegas Convention Center, and even though a few had later starts than others… all made it down to the LVCC to check out the goodness (and craziness) that is CES.
Heading into the LVCC
Of course, once our passes were in-hand, the first stop was a private tour of the @NVIDIA booth...

Robert and Marques at the NVIDIA booth
Up close and personal with the NVIDIA Grid
From there, the team 'fanned out' across the show floor...
Rich with the Qubeey girls
Martin, Marques and Robert (aka 'Bobby Brown') checking out some new tech.
Later on in the evening, we got together one last time with the Mobile Nations team for some food and drink at the Palazzo… and the icing on the cake was a visit from a certain CEO… you may have heard of him...
RIM CEO Thorsten Heins (far right) paid us a visit!
With all the amazing experiences now behind us, it's sadly time to wrap things up. I'd like to personally thank Robert, Michael, TJ, Marques, Rich and Martin (and Tegra Champ Kevin O'Quinn) for coming out and for being such solid dudes. It was really something to see the passion and love you have for mobile technology. Your opinions, beliefs and ideas were all extremely well informed and thought provoking to say the very least. I sincerely hope you share your experiences with the rest of the Mobile Nations communities by leaving comments, starting new threads, and interacting with other members … and be sure to let everyone know how EASY it was to win… and how FUN this experience was!

Of course, I'd be remiss if I didn't also give thanks to our pals @NVIDIA… with a super special thanks to @WillPark for being our go-to man during the experience. He went above and beyond, and I think it's fair to say he deserves a *tip of the cap* and a firm handshake for a job well done.
I now declare the Mobile Nations 2013 CES Experience… CLOSED!
I think 2013 CES is the most boring
You obviously didn't attend CES 2009 then...
Seriously. The one year I plan to go, at the beginning of 2008, was the one year everyone scaled back due to the resession. Samsung's booth was huge though. :)
When I said boring that meant there wasn't really exciting news about MOBILE except huwaei.. Nothing new from nokia,HTC there wasn't at all..
Ahh. I think we will see more and more primarily mobile companies doing major releases during MWC. Thinking about CES 2009...the pre was announced during that show. I found out about it going through all the tech blogs while waiting for my plane to head back home after the show. :P
Awesome party last night.
I think I'd spend most of my time at CES over at the Qubeey booth.
Disappointed with the pictures quality above.
Should have used a Lumia 920. :D
