Vendors jumping the gun on CES 2012 announcements

HP Omni 27 PC

The annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) held in Vegas every January is usually the place where new products are announced and unveiled to the general public. Often, final details of new products are kept under wrap, to build suspense until the show actually begins where they are then rolled out with a bang hoping for an ooh-aah response. However, with the number of press releases hitting my inbox in advance of CES 2012 with very few embargoed until after Jan 10th, I wonder if this trend is really reversing.
