At CES 2014 we at Mobile Nations teamed up with our friends at Geek Beat to bring you #CESlive, a unique live broadcast running every day from the show floor at CES 2014 — and CES 2015 is going to be even bigger than before. For #CESlive 2015 you can add Tom's Guide to the mix, with Editor-in-Chief Mark Spoonauer joining Geek Beat's Cali Lewis and John Pozadzides and iMore's Rene Ritchie in hosting more than 80 interviews direct from the Las Vegas Convention Center. It's going to be bigger and better than ever!
This is, of course, complimentary to our usual coverage of what's new and happening from the CES show floor, live events, and everything else that goes down that week in Vegas (it's the one week where everything that happens in Vegas doesn't stay there). We'll be bringing you more details as we get closer to CES 2015 — that's January 6-9, so mark your calendars now — but in the meantime you can check out the press release below for more details.
And if you're at all interested in sponsoring #CESlive 2015, interviews, or product demo opportunities, be sure to let us know!
