Sony’s CES Booth is Hot, Hot, Hot

by Team Sony 01/09/2009

Although I’m hearing reports the overall attendance at CES is a bit lower this year, the Sony booth continues to be jam packed.  From what I’ve seen and heard from others, our booth has been more crowded than any other.

The biggest crowds are surrounding our 3D television and Flex OLED technology displays. These two initiatives are also driving a lot of the press coverage from the show. In fact, I just returned from doing a live television interview with Stuart Varney of the FOX Business Channel about these developments.

But the crowds aren’t limited to these two areas. The new VAIO P series of lifestyle (please don’t call them “netbook”) PCs has them three-deep backed up to check them out.  While they only weigh 1.4 pounds and fit in a purse or jacket pocket, they have a good size keyboard and are full featured with wireless WAN, LAN and Bluetooth technologies, plus Verizon cellular capability and GPS functionality.  And, yes, they are quite stylish.

Also, the Wi-Fi Cyber-shot camera that Sir Howard Stringer unveiled at his keynote yesterday is attracting big crowds.  It’s won a bunch of awards at the show already.  So too have our Eco-BRAVIA televisions and the XBR9 line of Motionflow 240 Hz, Internet Video Link-integrated TVs.  And even our Walkman line has is getting a lot of oohs and ahhs this year, including the model with an OLED display and our headphone-style model with the cool new Zappin technology that lets you scan to the most popular riffs of different songs.

    Really upset I missed this years CES. Sony booth is always a favorite of mine as I’m a huge Sony user. Wish I could have seen Survivorman’s presentation today. Thanks for the updates!

    What really got the most attention, though, was Tom Hanks’ hilarious stage performance!!!

    Great news to hear! I’m glad the awards are won as Sony certain deserves them!

    I love the pocket/purse netbook! That is a good idea for a mover and shaker as well as someone who is wanting to spend leisure time with something sleek and portable which won’t weigh them down!

    Thanks again for the hard work! I still hope that this show will showcase answers to Apple’s technology with the iPhone and iPod and that there maybe some new unveilings for professional cameras!
