Gazing into the future with Gartner, what can we expect in the world of tech?
The research firm recently revealed its forecast for 2010 and beyond, envisioning a world where more of us live and breathe online and more often through our smartphones than our PCs.
Although the predictions target Gartner's corporate clients, most will certainly affect smaller businesses and consumers too.
"As organizations make plans to navigate the economic recovery and prepare for the return to growth, our predictions for 2010 focus on the impact of critical changes in the balance of control and power in IT,&… Read more
LAS VEGAS--CES 2010 didn't produce quite a showstopper like last year's Palm Pre, but there's certainly one theme that dominated the show in the cell phone and smartphone categories and that's Android, Android, and Android. After a false start at CES 2009--last year's show defied expectations to produce no Android announcements--Google's OS finally emerged from its shell this year.
Of course, there was plenty of buzz about it even before CES started, after the official announcement of the Nexus One. Though neither Google nor HTC were officially showing the Nexus One in Las Vegas (… Read more
LAS VEGAS--We stopped by the Sony Ericsson booth at CES 2010 to catch a glimpse of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 (check out Kent German's hands-on impressions here), but we also happened to stumble upon the Xperia X2. Remember that Windows Mobile smartphone announced a while ago? Yeah, we almost forgot about it too.
We took the opportunity to ask Sony Ericsson about it and representatives quietly revealed that the Xperia X2 will be available from SonyStyle stores this spring. Company representatives didn't provide a specific release date or pricing, but hopefully, it won't be as exorbitant … Read more

Once an Apple engineer, Andy Rubin went on to co-found mobile computing outfits Danger and Android. He sold the former to Microsoft and the latter to Google, where he is now vice president of engineering. He's also the guy quarterbacking development of Google's Android mobile operating system and the Nexus One--the smartphone with which Google hopes to fundamentally change the way people buy cell phones.
We're all back together again as one big, happy cell phone family here in Las Vegas to cover CES 2010.

LAS VEGAS--Palm's announcement at CES 2010 wasn't a complete surprise. Rumors of the Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus for Verizon Wireless were floating around preshow for a few weeks, but that doesn't mean we weren't interested in checking out the products.
Luckily for us, Palm let us take a hands-on look at the devices this year (Palm CEO Jon Rubinstein even made a wisecrack about last year's restrictions at the press conference), and though they weren't quite the showstoppers that the Pre was at CES 2009, there were certainly things that … Read more
