LAS VEGAS ( TheStreet) -- There was no tablet-waving this year for Microsoft ( MSFT) chief Steve Ballmer during his third annual speech to open the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show Wednesday evening. If anything, he should have held an Xbox or the popular sensor device, Kinect.Unlike the unappreciated Windows Phone 7 or the terrific but obligatory Windows 7 PC system, at least the Kinect is a product people seem to be excited about. Ballmer announced that 8 million Kinect devices were sold in the two months after it was launched -- 3 million more than the company targeted.
