LAS VEGAS--Although hardware took the spotlight at CES 2011, there was plenty to see on the software and service side as well, particularly in conjunction with said hardware. For one, the vast majority of the latest and greatest TVs at the show were Internet-capable devices with some type of app integration.
Another hot topic from the show: Honeycomb, the upcoming Android OS designed specifically for tablets. The OS features refined multitasking, richer and more interactive widgets, and a 3D user experience with unique home screen customization options.
Several online services made appearances as well, particularly those that focus on multimedia. Unifi from RealNetworks took home our Best of CES category award in software and apps for its innovative approach to collecting all your media from across various services and devices and presenting it in a simple, unified interface.
