CES Day 2 took us to the LVCC where we met with a lot of companies that will be familiar to you and a few I'm sure you haven't heard of before.  Today we saw products that ranged from Memory to Bluetooth and even from Navigation to PC Cases and Cooling.  We also covered pretty much everything in between.  We've even had a brief look at a nice P2P box from D-Link.  It's good stuff, so make sure you keep on reading for all the details, images and more from the Show Floor.

Crucial/Lexar: 

My Day 2 at CES lead me to the Crucial/Lexar booth where we got to spend some time with Crucial talking about their RAM products.  Crucial is not prepared to sit idly by during 2008 and seeing their memory customers release faster clocked DDR3 products before them.  This is a beautiful thing for the consumer as this means that Crucial will have faster modules available at the same time or before other companies. Most high-end DDR2 and DDR3 memory products use Micron chips and Crucial should have first choice.

Crucial has a future "Limited Release" of its new RED memory.  This memory comes in a 4GB kit of DDR2 800 with tight timings and will be available in the UK very shortly.  They are not planning a US release of this product for another couple of months, but they have promised us a sample to see how sweet it is to be RED. We'll find out soon.

 

Mio:

Mio has a fairly decent presence here at CES this year and some of the mono-rail trains are proudly brandishing Mio advertisements.  I'm not sure why you need a GPS on a train, but apparently they won't get lost.  We snapped a quick picture of their new 720 that will be available in North America immediately.
