Consumer Electronics Exhibition 2013 Highlights

Armaggeddon, ASUS and Avision

The newest kid on the block, the Consumer Electronics Exhibition (CEE), is currently held at Suntec City from the 31st of October to the 3rd of November 2013. It's still pretty much in its infancy but if consumers warm up to it, this show will be another yearly fixture. For a start, it's held at Level 6 in Suntec's exhibition center, Hall 601 to 605, from 12pm to 9pm. It's a smaller show than what you might be used to, so most of the show floor is taken up by the ISPs and major electronics retailers like Courts and Newstead, so here are some of the deals and products that caught our eye. Oddly, there aren't any major TV/AV related products at the show and most are related to computing, communications and personal entertainment.
