Samsung focuses on 3D LED TVs and Apps for TVs

Samsung details future strategy at CES 2010

At its press conference at the Consumer Electronics Show this week, Samsung revealed dozens of products, including new TVs, home theater systems, and eBook readers as well as content partnerships with Dreamworks, Google, and others.

Of particular note to gamers, and any of us with an appreciation for high performance TVs and gadgets, was the company's new LED 9000 TV, a screen said to be "as thin as a pencil" that features a 3D processor, a 240MHz refresh rate and a remote control with its own live TV display.

The company also announced a new App store for its connected TVs, Blu-Ray players and other devices that will bring iPhone-style applications and games direct to TV screens. Content providers already include AccuWeather, Blockbuster, Netflix, Pandora, and Vudu, but many more are set to be announced soon. Tim Baxter, president of Samsung Electronics America, said Samsung Apps would be an open platform. "If you thought it was fun developing an app for a three-inch phone screen?," said Baxter before going on to talk about how much more fun it would be to create an app for a 55-inch display.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
