NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Nov 26, 2012) - Technology, especially that used in the design and manufacture of consumer electronics, is ever changing. A Fox News article reported on the trends on display at the recent Hong Kong Electronics Fair. Popular online retailer of consumer electronics, Simply Electronics, took note of the push to provide consumers with electronics that remain easy to use as they offer more features.
According to the article, the annual Hong Kong trade show hosts the largest number of exhibitors, and this year welcomed 3,900 manufacturers. For the most part, the companies present focused on small electronics like tablets and smartphones. The article notes this year the event also showcased the trend to take televisions online.
As recent as one year ago, 3D televisions were thought to be the next big thing in television innovation. At the most recent trade show, the article noted it was apparent this technology is no longer at the forefront. What did make a splash were televisions manufactured with processors and Wi-Fi capabilities.
A popular online retailer of consumer electronics, Simply Electronics, commented on this trend. In a statement to the press, the company noted: "The advent of televisions built with many of the same components as computers will return a feeling of excitement back to watching shows. This technology will allow consumers to access a variety of programs, as well as movies, from subscription services. With the click of a button, customers will enjoy settling in for an evening of entertainment."
The company refers to streaming services that are gaining in popularity among consumers. One such service offered by Netflix allows individuals to select from programs by tapping into their on-demand offerings. Consumers presently have to purchase a special Wi-Fi compatible box to access these subscription services. The article indicates that building the features of the boxes into the televisions themselves will enhance the viewing experience. Or at least simplify it.
In addition to the innovative televisions, the article reported devices built to transform one type of device into another were popular. Technology is now available to make a tablet function like a gaming system and turn smartphones into monitoring devices. These items are expected to become more popular as they are refined over the next year.
