The rise of Chinese hardware, open source OSes and phablets

If anything, Ubuntu OS running on smartphones and tablets will likely be among the more exciting things to check out at the show. However, ‘phablets’ (oversized phone-cum-tablet devices) are likely to dominate, with several having already been announced before the show and more expected to land during it.

Samsung will be present on the show floor and is rumoured to be lifting the lid on an 8-inch Galaxy Note tablet device. It’s worth noting that last year’s big hit from Samsung (the Galaxy S III) wasn’t announced at the show and there are few expectations that we will see its successor make an appearance in February.
