Samsung announced various range of products at CES. These are some of the tidbits that have sprung up from their press conference that took off at 1:54PM EST .
2:06PM EST - Connectivity, content and creativity is new mantra -- Samsung's new theme: "Life Made Simple."
2:08PM EST - Emphasizes "bringing different screens together so you can easily share your content." Says WiFi will see action of a bevy of its upcoming products.
2:13PM EST - "IPTV will change the way we interact with our TV -- pimps RSS integration in future HDTVs.
2:21PM EST - Another suit climbs on stage. Series 7 LCD TV gets announced -- uses design inspirations from "the automotive industry." Doesn't look too different than what Sammy currently offers. Lots of gloss, lots of black. Also touts inspirations from nature to create a "timeless design." Whatever that means.
2:23PM EST - Series 7 to include built-in Ethernet port, built-in USB port. 1080p, 120Hz, Super Clear II Panel.
2:27PM EST - Trumpets the BD-UP5500 -- yeah, anything new? Oh, here's the A1000 AV Media Center, neat. (It's down on the left)
2:37PM EST - It's mobile time! Samsung says people "see your phone before they see you." It's kinda true, we guess. Lots of gloating -- "we brought the first GPS-enabled phone to the US." Fellow on stage nearly recommended a BlackBerry, quickly caught himself, reverted to "BlackJack II."
