Axion showed some LCD TV/DVD combos.  A 15" goes for $499.  A 20" goes for $699.

Genoa showed a 5 color (RGB + Cyan + Yellow) LCD.  More vibrant colors and claims that it can help reduce costs.

LG-Philips 2" VGA display.  They had a magnifying glass nearby to let you read it. Pitch was fine enough that it almost looked like a photograph.

Some will do anything to win a free product. If the Microsoft fairy sees you wearing their buttons you get a free SPOT watch.

Put a projector behind a Lucera panel and you have a bright floating display.  Not for consumers ($1900 to $3000), but less expensive than their competitor.

Samsung booth.  They claimed that they had the largest booth at CES (2500 square feet).

Samsung and everyone else had some kind of portable media player.  Some had photos, some video, some just music.
