Best Buy tablets

While the tablet industry hasn’t exactly skyrocketed yet, Best Buy is gearing for change this holiday season. With the Apple’s   being the pioneer for pushing tablets into the spotlight, other new tablets (specifically those powered by Windows 7) will be popping up soon this holiday season, and Best Buy is set to capitlize on the tablet surge. Shawn Score, the president of Best Buy Mobile stated “we will have a great assortment of them. It won’t be 32, but it also won’t be one, like we have today.” Score further stated that “like e-readers over the last couple years, we think customers will think of Best Buy for tablets and expect us to have the right ones.” 

As of right now, entertainment giant Best Buy only carries the Apple tablet, but expect tablets from Samsung, Acer and Research In Motion to most likely grace Best Buy stores nationwide this holiday season.

Bleeding Edge TV 328: Project Natal demo from CES 2010

During the opening keynote, Microsoft announced that would be launching in Holiday 2010. We take that to mean that we will be able to pick one up at a retail store sometime before Thanksgiving, giving us a good 11 month wait before we can get our hands on it, unless they have something good set up for this year. During the event, Microsoft also showed off a demo video explaining the concept behind Natal and what it will be able to do for you. We captured it, and have it available for you here. Check it out, and color us excited.

A big thank you to Bing for sponsoring Gear Live’s CES 2010 coverage.
