We have taken some time to go through some of our sources and tried to tie up the loose ends, to come up with few predictions as to what you can expect at CES 2010. So without further ado, here are some of our predictions for few of the exhibitors at CES 2010.

Intel Corp.

Intel President & CEO Paul Otellini will be one of the keynote speakers at CES 2010 and from what is doing rounds, Intel will be using the stage to showcase their upcoming range of products for the portable computing. One of the products that will be shown is their new Pine Trail platform with Pineview the successor to their Atom processors. Pine Trail is for the Netbook computers, with the GPU & CPU will be on the same die. Unfortunately for Intel, nobody is excited about Pine Trail because of its lack of HD video decoding and what is going to be a very under-powered GPU. Intel might be using this stifled-configuration to distinguish between low-end laptop computers & Netbook computers.

Another possible product to show itself is Intel Moorestone codename for their Mobile Internet Devices platform. Moorestone is a system-on-chip for high-end feature rich cell phones also referred to as Mobile Internet Devices.
