If Monday is Day 0, with badge pick-up and CES Unveiled, then Tuesday was Day 1, otherwise known as Press Day. This is where we run around trying to get to all the press conferences we can to check out the new products companies are pushing out this year or working on for a general future release.
With Christmas and New Years over for 2015, and being a few days into a fresh new year, this can only mean one thing and that is its time for CES 2016.

Barnes and Noble has struggled recently with their line of Nook tablets. While their partnership with Samsung was announced a few months ago, their new tablet has been revealed and is available for purchase now.
Nvidia Shield 2 rumors have been reported on DroidGamers among many other sites. The newest rumor is that Nvidia is working on something that will connect to TVs via an HDMI cable. While the Nvidia Shield is capable of this, the new device would require an additional controller, which is in line with the recent Shield Tablet rumors. However the controller is said to be a budget controller, though personally I hope they don’t sacrifice too much in the way of usability and comfort for the sake of giving the lowest price possible.
Vexia is at Mobile World Congress 2014 showing off a rather unique product that is an Android phone and tablet in one unit but this isn’t a phablet.

Amazon is getting ready to spread their wings a little bit more than normal and have announced that they will be offering up their 8.9″ Kindle Fire HD through AT&T later this week. The 8.9″ Kindle Fire HD will actually be at a somewhat reasonable price as well. Of course that is with you signing a 2-year contract of course.
