It’s the new year, which means the king of all tech events is upon us: The Consumer Electronics Show 2012 is this week. Just about every tech-related company (seriously, thousands) will meet in Nevada to share the latest products and services they’ve been working on for the past year. Innovations in smartphones, computers (laptops, desktops, netbooks!), tablets, e-readers, gaming, audio, auto, TV, and MORE will be revealed. Engadget has a run-down of what we can expect from each category before the event takes place, and make sure to follow along on the official site next week!
