Report Summary:

We attended CES 2018 in Las Vegas, USA to dig into the latest trends in the tablet and touchscreen world. In this report, we explore three major themes: the reimagined connected tablet/PC; focus on 2-in-1 Tablets; and, smart speakers with screens. Will the carrier or retail channel benefit from “Always Connected” devices? Do vendors and suppliers have a path to profitability in 2-in-1s and what opportunities and threats do smart speakers pose to industry players?
