CES 2011: Day 3 preview

By Hayley Tsukayama

The Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas is starting to wind down: Keynotes are over, and most of the big announcements have dropped, but there are still some things worth noting.

The winners of contests that have been running through all of CES will be announced.

CNET is naming their Best of CES Awards at 11 a.m. PST, handing out their kudos to the best phones, computers, gaming devices and more, including the People's Voice award. You can still vote for the People's Voice before 10 a.m. PST, or 1 p.m. Eastern Time.

Another fun contest at CES, the Last Gadget Standing, will finish up at 10:30 a.m. PST. Voters had the option to choose from among 10 gadgets of all types for their very favorite.

Finally, the winner of the Mobile App Showdown will also be announced, naming the best mobile app of the year. As of Friday night, the Line2 app, which allows users to add a second line to their iPhones, led the pack.

Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) will be the keynote speaker at a session on Tech Policy, discussing how the industry and government can straddle the line between supporting innovation and protecting citizens information.

And here are two big announcements from Day 2, in case you missed them:

- Ford announced the Electric Ford Focus, and promised to have five 2012 electric models by 2012.

- FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski pledged to push for more spectrum for broadband.
