LAS VEGAS (
TheStreet) -- Today is Day Two of the Consumer Electronics Show, the 43 year-old trade event that serves as a high-profile launching pad for technology's biggest -- and smallest -- brand names.
Despite the recession hangover that sees much of this sector battered, more than 2,500 vendors have convened in Las Vegas to announce a battery of product and partnership agreements, all potentially stock-changing news.
While we're not likely to see any new, blockbuster tech categories emerge at this year's event, we've been busy testing the barrage of smartphones, tablet devices, and many other niche technologies that have become smarter and more web-savvy.
Each day, our tech team will bring you some of the day's most popular picks, straight from the showroom floor.
