The Consumer Electronics Show is a week-long annual celebration of technology in all its forms. It's a venue where over a hundred thousand digerati show up to see the latest and greatest from a huge number of companies. It also has some horrible flaws.
Yesterday was the second day of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The Brighthand editors and staff spent the day looking at new smartphones and accessories as fast as we could, and we're bringing you the best of them.

This holiday buying season, plenty of would-be smartphone owners are looking at 4G phones, wondering what benefits there are to 4G, and whether they need them. We'll take a look at a few of the important questions, weigh the pros and cons, and tell you what you might want to consider.

Sony went into E3 with an NGP, but came out with a Vita when it officially named the second-generation PSP. Judging from the crowd gathered around Sony's booth and long lines of eager attendees waiting for hands-on time with the Vita, it might just be the next must-have handheld gaming console.
The device formerly known as the PlayStation NGP received an official name at E3, where Sony announced the next-generation PSP will be known as the "PlayStation Vita". In addition, the device will support both Wi-Fi and 3G, which will be exclusive to AT&T.
