CES is a slog. It's big, it's loud, and it's often exciting. Here at Android Central, it's an important show, though less so than in recent years. In 2017, CES starts earlier than usual — January 5, in fact — with people likely arriving in Las Vegas, Nevada on New Year's Day to get ahead of the throng of people.

Part of the excitement is the varied announcements, from smartphones to virtual reality to televisions, connected washing machines and lots of weird, wonderful robots. The show gets bigger each year, and that means more awesome tech news, devices, products, and services will be coming your way.
