    I expect the usual windows tablet suspects to release or announce woa tablet's, and I expect Microsoft to wait until October 2018 with an announcement, with their woa device released Dec 31...

    That said, I'm excited, bring on the daily product announcement flood

    Perhaps my short term memory isn't what it should be, but I remember last year's CES as something of a dud. I think there is a slight risk of repetition, and if that happens what happens to CES?

    Too late - I don't care what Thurrott says to the contrary...

    Not much - CES is just as much about TV's and other electronics as it is about computers...

    Well, @Kumabjorn is right - CES is a dud for WOA news - I know it isn't even officially underway yet, but barring a VERY WELL KEPT SECRET there appears to be no hot gossip about WOA devices - they do have a strange roll-able 65" LG screen and a new Samsung 145" wall size TV...

    I'm beginning to think my title of "Will WOA Wow?" is almost as useless as "Does it blend?"

    What's weird too is that even the partners that have announced devices don't seem willing to commit. Like, HP apparently has an Intel variant of their ARM device as well.

    I wonder how much pressure Intel is trying to exert on the OEMs? They've been notorious for doing it in the past but I seem to remember they got into a bit of trouble for it too.

    As in "...those nice new Intel/AMD chips you have been reading about, NOT SO FAST HP!..."

    FINALLY some WOA love at CES. I've started a thread for the Miix 630 here.

    A bit pricey specially since it's the 835 and not 845.

    Yeah, people must really need that battery life to justify paying these kinds of prices for a relatively weak CPU. And they're not that amazingly light either.
