CES 2011: Day "0" wrap-up

By Hayley Tsukayama

Day "0" of the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show is in the can, and it's hard to believe that the real show doesn't technically start until tomorrow.

Here's a roundup of the day's major announcements:

- Intel made a pitch for its Sandy Bridge chips early in the day after jumping the gun a bit and formally announcing them Monday.

- LG announced Smart TVs, the super slim Optimus Black and the superphone Optimus 2X, which sports a Tegra 2 chip from Nvidia.

- Nvidia also announced it would enter the CPU game, teaming up with ARM to take on Intel.

-Speaking of ARM, long-time Intel partner Windows confirmed that the next version of its operating system will support ARM architecture.

- AT&T announced its plans for LTE and some handsets for the new 4G network, including the HTC Inspire that made a surprise appearance in the latest issue of Rolling Stone.

- An iPad 2 case from Dexim fell in line with rumors about the new tablet from Apple, including front-and-rear facing cameras, a slimmer chassis, and bigger speakers.

-Panasonic announced a Viera tablet, as well as a line of camcorders that can record high-definition 2D and 3D. Launch details will be announced 30 days before release, says ZDNet.

-Motorola revealed the XOOM Honeycomb-powered tablet, a 3G device on Verizon future-proofed and capable of upgrading to 4G. The 10.1-inch device features software specifically designed to run on tablets.
