Fresh off his MacWorld coverage, head WMExpert Dieter Bohn is on the ground in Las Vegas, along with our friends at Crackberry and Android Central for the 2009 Consumer Electronics Show, and he'll be liveblogging Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer's keynote address tonight at 9 p.m. EST, 6 p.m. on the West Coast.

And that's just the tip of the Windows Mobile iceberg. Once CES gets going, Dieter will be sending us the latest and greatest from CES as it happens. What we're hoping for: Some Windows 7 love, possibly a Windows Mobile 6.5 sighting or two, and maybe some new phones. And if we're real lucky, maybe another monkey dance. (From Ballmer. Not Dieter.)

Join us tonight for more furious liveblog action.
