    The CES 2013 keynote is about to start. I will be on the live blog providing some commentary and tweeting the news. And Shara Tibken will be on the ground in Vegas giving us all the juicy news. So stay tuned!

    CNET's photographer James Martin already has some photos posted to set the scene for the big event.
  • Marguerite Reardon 1/8/2013 2:22:43 AM
    I'm helping cover the event remotely from the East coast. Still listening to some light jazz on the Webcast waiting for the big event to begin. Please feel free to send some comments and questions ahead of time. And we can get a conversation going before things kick off.

    So Qualcomm Keynotes...have they ever had any exciting CES News?
  • Marguerite Reardon 1/8/2013 2:25:25 AM
    That's a good question. They're a chip company so I don't know if I'd categorize any of their product announcements as that exciting. That said, they are an incredibly important company. And as consumer products increasingly get connected to the Internet, they will continue to be more important to the industry.
  • Shara Tibken 1/8/2013 2:26:00 AM
    Hey guys. We're about to start.
  • Shara Tibken 1/8/2013 2:26:59 AM
    It's a full house at this event. Maroon 5 will be playing, and there are likely going to be other special guests, as well.
  • Caine H 1/8/2013 2:27:46 AM
    Awesome thanks for letting me know Marguerite!
    Shara I can't wait! Lets hope they do talk about some interesting stuff!
  • Shara Tibken 1/8/2013 2:28:08 AM
    Qualcomm is taking this keynote over for Microsoft, so I'm sure they don't want to disappoint us.
  • Shara Tibken 1/8/2013 3:00:53 AM
    This is console quality gaming on a mobile device
  • Shara Tibken 1/8/2013 3:01:15 AM
    (Note - I think Nvidia would probably disagree with that. The graphics/mobile chip maker unveiled its own gaming tablet last night)
  • James Martin 1/8/2013 3:01:21 AM
  • Shara Tibken 1/8/2013 3:01:39 AM
    To top it off, our new GPU is incredibly efficient. Consumes about half the power of its predecessor. Game game more and recharge less.

    800 also delivers amazing multimedia experiences including the new standard for video quality. UltraHD.
  • James Martin 1/8/2013 3:02:23 AM
  • Shara Tibken 1/8/2013 3:02:24 AM
    I'm pretty sure you're going to hear a lot about Ultra HD at this show. (Note - that's for sure)
  • James Martin 1/8/2013 3:02:43 AM
  • Shara Tibken 1/8/2013 3:02:49 AM
    Some who knows what Ultra HD can do is our next guest. Director, producer, writer, driving force behind movies like Pan's Labyrinth.
  • Shara Tibken 1/8/2013 3:02:53 AM
    Guillermo Del Toro
  • Shara Tibken 1/8/2013 3:03:09 AM
    Lots of cheering for this guest. Almost as much as for Ballmer.
  • Shara Tibken 1/8/2013 3:03:22 AM
    New movie coming out called Pacific Rim.
  • James Martin 1/8/2013 3:03:46 AM
  • Shara Tibken 1/8/2013 3:04:16 AM
    Sneak peek of the movie, coming out from Warner Bros.
  • Shara Tibken 1/8/2013 3:04:23 AM
    Running clip off Snapdragon tablet.
  • James Martin 1/8/2013 3:04:47 AM
  • Shara Tibken 1/8/2013 3:05:29 AM
    Clip still going on
  • Marguerite Reardon 1/8/2013 3:05:37 AM
    Here's my quick story on Ballmer crashing Jacobs keynote: ces.cnet.com

  • Shara Tibken 1/8/2013 3:06:03 AM
    It's about monsters coming out of the sea. And robots fight them.
  • Shara Tibken 1/8/2013 3:06:35 AM
    Qualcomm Snapdragon saving the world, canceling the apocalypse

    Del Toro: When you're watching a great film, you want a great experience
  • Marguerite Reardon 1/8/2013 3:08:24 AM
    Ultra HD does seem pretty cool.
  • Shara Tibken 1/8/2013 3:08:41 AM
    Now showing some remastered footage of "dynamic visuals"
  • Shara Tibken 1/8/2013 3:08:45 AM
    Warning us some parts of the clip may be jolting
  • Marguerite Reardon 1/8/2013 3:09:17 AM
    Some "compelling" visuals are coming our way. Hold onto your hats.
  • James Martin 1/8/2013 3:09:39 AM
  • Marguerite Reardon 1/8/2013 3:09:56 AM
    I'm sure it looks way cooler live than it does on my computer screen watching the Web cast.
