During the course of CES here in Las Vegas, more than 20,000 new products will be introduced, and here's a recap of all of them. Just kidding. Over the next few days, I'll bring you what I consider to be the most interesting, coolest or just plain weird from this year's show floor and environs.
Philips will practically double the number of Android-specific earphones when it starts selling four models in April. But instead of volume up-down controls, you download a Philips earphone app and then tap the single button multiple times on the in-line mic to perform music control functions such as skip track. They couldn't demo the app – it's not finished yet – and I was told it's not nearly as complicated as it sounds, but I'll reserve judgment on 'em until I can play with 'em. There are two in-ear models ($30, $50), and ear-hook ($40) and an over-the-head ($100).
