Tablets and netbooks aren't synonymous, though they'll converge more than they diverge in the next few years.
The final trend I want to talk about is the intense interest in power here at CES. The interest goes in two directions, capacity and environmental sensitivity. Capacity is increasingly critical as more users depend on mobile devices for business-critical applications and want to know that their hardware will be available for as much of the business day as they require. Further, they want that power to come in a "green"package, whether that means generation from solar or wind power, elimination of vampire power use, or highly-recyclable materials.
It's only the first day and I'm already tired -- this is a huge show and there are miles of aisles to walk. Video and more blogging tomorrow, so check back often -- and let me know what you'd like to see me check out while I'm here in Las Vegas.
