Microsoft, Motorola, Verizon: CES Preview

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Next week marks the biggest week on tech's calendar as the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show kicks off in Las Vegas.

Not only will all the gadgets from the future be there, so will TheStreet. And amid the buzz about connected cars and connected TVs, tablets and 4G wireless, we will be zeroing in on the pertinent investment news that could influence stocks.

2011 CES

So what's in store? Microsoft's (MSFT) new, new tablet plan, Verizon's (VZ) 4G devices, and Motorola's (MOT) Google (GOOG) Android-Honeycomb tablet, for starters.

Here are a few other highlights.

ARM-based processors

Nvidia (NVDA) has scheduled a press conference Tuesday, and the expectation is that the chip shop will have a beefier graphics processor for laptops and a slew of mobile devices to show off its Tegra 2 dual core processor. One guess is that Nvidia will feature the LG Optimus 2X Android phone, running a Tegra chip.

The stock

Nvidia has had difficulty expanding its business beyond graphics chips. Every year for the past three years, it has promised an ARM-based mobile chip; this may be the first time Nvidia delivers. Qualcomm (QCOM) and ARM (ARMH) will also be showcasing similar chips at the show.
