In 2008, CES gets even more friendly with the auto industry by inviting GM CEO Rick Wagoner to be a keynote speaker. It will be the first time in CES's 40-year history that an automotive CEO has delivered one of its keynotes.
Could Wagoner's scheduled appearance indicate a big mobile electronics announcement from GM? Possibly big news about the Volt? A competing technology to counter Ford's Sync? We'll all know Jan. 8, after Wagoner's 8 p.m. Vegas-time speech.
Oh, and for you Microsoft fanboys, don't worry, Bill Gates is still delivering the main keynote Jan. 6 at 6:30 p.m.
