I honestly can't remember when I wrote my last Wish List post. But the new year along with the hot gear I observed at CES this month has got me in overdrive in anticipation of everything that's coming to consumers in 2011. Notebooks, netbooks, slates and lots of other hot items are set to get some major changes this year, and I've decided to share with you my list of top items to look out for!
Likewise, for those who have been holding out on their purchase of a new notebook, netbook or slate, 2011 will more than likely make you open your wallet and renew your gadget fantasy.
It's been a good three weeks now since I signed up with Clearwire and acquired my Clear Spot 4G. While my excitement of getting faster data speeds was more or less met, and worked surprisingly well at first, more extensive testing turned out some severe deficiencies with both the hardware and Clearwire's service. Sadly, further difficulties compounding my use left me no other option than to return the 4G device and cancel my service.
The 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) kicked off this week in Las Vegas, Nevada. And for the first time this year, I have been fortunate enough to attend this important event in the tech calendar. While I'm certainly no stranger to Vegas or conventions in general, this show is special for me in many ways. It's by far the biggest convention I have ever attended, it's the first event to get coverage here on lgpOnTheMove, and it's the place to get the scoop on all the latest gadgets and technology to hit consumers hands. Last but most importantly, it's where I get to introduce lgpOnTheMove to product vendors and manufacturers.
I may be in a fringe area with a CINR of only 7, but it's good enough to do 2500kbps with an average latency of 77ms. That's faster than peak 3G speeds, and for a price difference of just five dollars per month, the Clear Spot 4G from Clearwire has given my Virgin Mobile MiFi 2200 the TKO. Yes, lgpOnTheMove goes 4G unlimited for 2011, and at just $45/month, I'm now seriously considering retiring my home DSL connection for good as well. I'll be taking this little gem for an extensive test drive over the next couple of weeks, including throwing it into my CES gear bag for Vegas. Stay tuned for a full review of the Clear Spot 4G on lgpOnTheMove soon!
Fighting the effects of just a little too much champagne, I'd like to wish all my readers here on lgpOnTheMove a safe and prosperous Happy New Year. 2010 saw a major upgrade on my blog, with more action than ever before. 2011 will continue the excitement on lgpOnTheMove, so expect even more great news, reviews and cool notebook stuff.
