CES Day 01 Gallery -- iPhone Accessories at iLounge Pavilion

The iPhone has made it's first big, official splash at CES 2010, courtesy of the iLounge Pavilion, set up by the fine folks at iLounge. I've only spent half a day walking around so far, but you can't throw an iPhone without hitting a major player at a big booth showing off some amazing new iPhone accessories.

Here's a quick rundown of what I've seen so far:

  • Etymotic, well known for their high-end in-ear headsets has incorporated the 3-button iPhone/iPod-style controller onto their cables giving you full volume, pause/play, etc. They're also offering an entry-level model without the same system, but with excellent sound quality.
  • HyperMac is offering a new external batteries with USB-out for iPhone.
  • ExtremeMac is doing a range of charging as well, lots of options.
  • Seidio is bringing the vibrant colored case love.
  • Case-mate is offering a design-it-yourself option for cases, also a no-squirt-liquid-required body skin, and Hug, a non-proprietary inductive charging solution where you can buy their case and pad, or from another member of the consortium so you can mix and match. Nissan cup holders will also support it!
  • Gelaskins is bringing in National Geographic and Marvel Comics licenses.
  • Music skins is bringing Beatles licenses.
  • Otterbox is offering lighter, but still armor-like solutions for those who want a little more convenience.
  • Incipio is going with multiple materials and bold designs.

For the past week or so I've been playing this new game from OstinGames, Zepi [iTunes Link - $.99] and it turns out it does belong in the "New and Noteworthy" section of the App Store. It's quite an addicting little game that's premise is simple, build the longest chain of bubbles of single color as fast as possible by tapping them. The longer chain of bubbles you have, the more points you receive.

Ford Sync at CES 2010 -- Very Slick, but iPhone Offers Only Partial Support

Ford Sync at CES 2010 -- Very Slick, but iPhone Offers Only Partial Support

Microsoft and Ford were showing off the third version of Ford Sync at CES, and Casey and Phil from Android Central and I jumped in and got a demo. The good news is that it works great. It plays your music, makes your phone calls, and alert the authorities in case of accident, and more...

The bad news is the "and more" doesn't apply to iPhone and iPod touch owners since Apple hasn't properly implemented all the Bluetooth control protocols. Also, SMS to voice isn't implemented for the iPhone, and I'm guessing that has to do with the current SDK as well.

Microsoft at CES 2010... What iPhone?

Microsoft at CES 2010... What iPhone?

I saw Microsoft's massive booth at CES and a giant Bing sign so, optimistically, I went on over to talk with them while our friends from WMExperts hit up the devices. The Bing folks were great, but had no specific knowledge about Bing for iPhone other than there was an app and it did stuff but was kinda beta outside the US. Fair enough. So I headed over to the main reception and asked if there was anyone there from the Microsoft iPhone team. And that's when it got funny. "What iPhone team?"

We talk up what we've seen so far, including the Nexus One and Motorola Backflip; we also chatted a bit about what we're hoping to see at Palm's event today.

As you might have guessed, the show was recorded and hosted by our pal Mickey Papillon of TCPJ. Give it a listen!
