Another big name descending into Fabulous Las Vegas was actor Will Smith, who appeared during a press conference led by Phil Molyneoux, COO of Sony Electronics. Here, a mind-boggling number of news announcements were delivered in rapid fire fashion about a slew of new Sony connected consumer products across a wide range of categories. Among them were Bloggie Live, the world’s first MP4 full HD pocket camera capable of live video streaming with built-in Wi-Fi and the wedge-shaped Sony Tablet S. Watch for individual MBE reviews on these innovative products soon. Smith, for his part, was on hand for a sneak preview of Men in Black MIB 3 from Sony and Columbia Pictures to be released in theaters May 25, 2012.
Not to be outdone by someone who has been in the public eye a few more years longer than she has was American Idol - Season 1 winner and multi-platinum singer and songwriter Kelly Clarkson who performed her hit song Mr. Know It All from the new album Stronger. It's amazing to think that this super talented vocalist has only been in the public eye for about 10 years, yet she has sold 20 million albums worldwide to date. Watch the press conference with Smith's CES appearance on stage and the performance of Clarkson by clicking on the Sony UStream Window above.
Also there was Nicole Nicole Polizzi best known as Snooki on the hit reality TV show Jersey Shore on hand at the iHip booth to launch her dazzling brand of headphones as well as headlining an exclusive party held by the brand at The Gallery Night Club at Planet Hollywood Las Vegas. Carl Banks of New York Giants fame; Jose "Hyde" Cotto, urban music pioneer; and DJ Luny Tunes all made appearances during CES to promote new personal branded iHip headphones, too.
