There is very little information on this but Microsoft seems to be back in at CES this year in a big way. According to Gary Shapiro, (president of the Consumer Electronics Association) they are renting out a ton of floor space.
“Microsoft is officially back in the International CES,”
“They are taking out significant space in meeting rooms – it’s actually a larger presence than I believe they have ever had.
“Microsoft will have to make the decision who the rooms are open to or not, but I imagine they’re very open to the press.
“We have had a tremendous partnership [with Microsoft] going back to the very beginning. You know, we had one little blip this year… but now we’re happy to have them back with a physical presence.”
I don’t know what they are up to however after shunning CES for a couple of years now they have my curiosity running high on why they are back this year? Anyone have any guesses?
