We're all back together again as one big, happy cell phone family here in Las Vegas to cover CES 2010. There have been a few mobile announcements at the show, but the most talked about handset launched right before we got here. Yes, we're talking about the Nexus One. We dive into the Google phone as well as dish the details on the latest CES launches, including the Palm Pre Plus, LG Lotus Elite, and Motorola Backflip, all on this week's episode of Dialed In, Las Vegas edition.

Still, Kent, Jason, and I find plenty to talk about, including our wishes for the iPhone 4G and ways Android beats the iPhone right now. Plus, we take a tour of Sony Ericsson's new user experience platform and try to answer more of your Windows Phone 7 Series questions. You can find it all here on Dialed In Episode 118.
