Ya muchos saben que Apple dejó de participar en MacWorld para irse a CES, anteriormente Apple había separado un espacio en el “Consumer Electronic Show” pasado, de un área de 4,000 pies cuadrados y este próximo CES el área para Apple contará con 25,000 pies cuadrado. CES esta cediendo más espacio para Apple, pero solo queda esperar si Apple tendrá participación directa allí ya que hasta ahora Apple no ha confirmado ni comentado al respecto. Como tal el espacio se llamará “iLounge Pavilion” donde se presentarán productos relacionados al iPhone, iPods & Macs y se espera que este año por primera vez haya una sección para aplicaciones y software para productos de Apple.
