On our way to Vegas, baby

That's right, it's that time of year when we descend on the desert to check out the latest offering from just about every tech firm in existence. Remember that tonight (9:30 p.m. EST, 6:30 p.m. PST) we'll be liveblogging Microsoft's keynote, with CEO Steve Ballmer and Robbie Bach, president of the Entertainment and Devices Division. Does that mean a rumored tablet? Might we finally get some official word of Windows Mobile 7? Only one way to find out.

As for the rest of the week, we'll be bringing you more Microsoft product news just as quickly as we can cover it. If you're the type who prefers the raw feed, follow the entire SPE team on Twitter.
