(excerpt from PC World) This year lots of tablets and apps will be on display as well as tons of mobile devices. Tablets are cheaper, laptops are thinner, and cameras are more like phones. Apps will be everywhere, including in cars. And Microsoft’s phone-inspired Windows 8 will edge closer to release.Beneath all of the specifics, though, mobile technology will be driving many of the trends on display at CES 2012 in Las Vegas next week. Phones, tablets, and mobile software are soaking up most of the energy and attention in technology today. We’ll see lots of new mobile products and technologies at CES, but we’ll also see older products–laptops, cameras, and even desktop PC OSs–trying to remain relevant by adopting features of mobile devices.
