The Skiff Reader and service was launched with the backing of magazine and newspaper behemoth Hearst. It features the largest and highest-resolution electronic-paper display for an e-reader, an 11.5-inch, 1200 by 1600 pixels (UXGA) screen that's flexible and made of stainless-steel foil. It uses Wi-Fi and Sprint 3G for connectivity. Pricing and availability were not yet available at the show.

E-book readers exploded in popularity on the show floor at this year's Consumer Electronics Show, in an array of colors, shapes, sizes and capabilities. Here are the top 10 e-readers I saw at this year's show. Check out the full gallery.

Looking to break away from the standard rules of laptop design, Asus has teamed with Danish consumer electronics maker Bang & Olufsen to create a slick-looking multimedia system that has two separate touch pads, situated on either side of the keyboard. Useful? Perhaps. But undoubtedly one of the most interesting designs at the show. More details and photos here.

3D is everywhere at CES 2010, but before you get swept up in the hype, it's worth remembering a few issues. First, you'll need glasses. Second, content is scarce. And third, you'll need a new TV. So with those facts considered, we'll take a look at a few of the 3D-capable HDTVs announced at the show this year. Click through the links to find out more about each. Take a closer look.

Panasonic is one of the major players in the new push to 3D and the company announced its first 3D Blu-ray player at CES 2010.

Panasonic didn't announce it in the press release, but when we took a tour of the booth we noticed that the DMP-BDT350 features dual HDMI outputs, which is unique compared with all the other 3D Blu-ray players announced at CES 2010. The reason for the dual ports is to deal with the fact that 3D Blu-ray requires HDMI 1.4, and all existing AV receivers support only HDMI 1.3.

The Panasonic DMP-BDT350 will integrate more easily with existing AV receivers, by sending the high-bandwidth 3D video directly to your HDTV, and the audio to the receiver. Other 3D Blu-ray players will require new HDMI 1.4 AV receivers if you want to use HDMI for audio.

We think it's a smart design choice, and it differentiates the DMP-BDT350 from the other 3D Blu-ray players at the show. See the contenders.

Sony had a few games playable in 3D including Super Stardust HD, Avatar, and Wipeout. The experience playing Wipeout in 3D is truly immersive, with layered graphics giving you a surreal sensation of being in the cockpit of a futuristic racing ship. Here's what we saw.

The Xperia Pureness is like few other phones we've seen before. Above its standard flush keypad, the candy bar handset has a transparent display. Here you can see the classic Sony Ericsson menu interface with white text and icons. It's certainly eye-catching, though we wonder how the display would function in bright sunlight. Here are more Sony Ericsson phones.

3D Blu-ray is one of the big stories at CES 2010, and it's no surprise that Sony is a major player in Blu-ray's next incarnation. Sony announced its first standalone 3D Blu-ray player, the BDP-S770, which also manages to integrate the best features of its current Blu-ray players.

In 2009, Sony's BDP-S560 had Wi-Fi, but limited streaming-media options; the BDP-N460 had tons of streaming-media options, but only Ethernet connectivity. The Sony BDP-S770 has the best of both players, so you'll have easy access to some instant gratification media when you're tired of wearing 3D glasses

Sony says the BDP-S770 is coming this summer, but didn't announce pricing. Here are more Sony home theater systems.
