Smartphone Experts at CES 2009! WMExperts, TreoCentral, Android Central, and Coverage

TiPb isn't the only Smartphone Experts site working our tails off this week. Our editor-in-chief, Dieter Bohn is pulling the live-blogging trifecta, going straight from Macworld to cover Steve Ballmer's CES kickoff tonight at 6pm PST for WMExperts AND for the (very much anticipated) debut of Palm's next generation NOVA hardware and OS for TreoCentral -- not to mention everything AndroidCentral. Never to be out done, CrackBerry Kevin (with a full on CrackBerry Crew!) will push any and all BlackBerry news they get their cracky hands on. Check out all our sites throughout the day for the latest, greatest, most Smartphone-geeky coverage.
