The inside track on CES 2009

After a 10 hour flight we've just touched down in Las Vegas, and while it's the middle of the night back in the UK, we're busy gearing up for the opening of the biggest consumer electronics show on the planet here in Nevada.

The Las Vegas Convention Centre will open its doors first thing in the morning, and the press conferences kick off here at 8am (around 4pm UK time).

First up is LG, swiftly followed by Toshiba, Sharp, Samsung, Sony and Panasonic.

Our laptops are primed, cameras are at the ready, so web connections permitting we hope to post the first batch of big stories around 5pm GMT.

We'll be bringing you all the latest news directly from CES here on, so remember to keep checking the site regularly for updates.

And in the meantime you can check out our sneak preview for a taste of what's in store.
