Next week is the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. As usual, Linux will have a role an increasing role in the event.

Beyond Linux appearing widespread at the annual Las Vegas gadget event in terms of all the Android-powered phones that will make their debut and various Linux appliances, there will be a bit more.

Canonical will be having a booth this year at CES 2012. Canonical has said they will be showing off some "exclusive Ubuntu concept design" at the event next week, but the specific details regarding that are still hush. This might be in the form of an Ubuntu-powered mobile device but wait and see. The Ubuntu smart-phones and Ubuntu TVs aren't due out until 2014, nor is this anything you can see right now out of the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS "Precise Pangolin" daily live images.

Aside from the Shuttleworth camp, some of the Raspberry Pi developers will be at CES2012, per this blog post. The $25+ ARM GNU/Linux board will be piggy-backing on top of the Broadcom stand and roaming around Las Vegas.

There will also be a few other Linux announcements from the Nevada show next week.

As usual, I'll be at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. This year I'll just be there from Saturday morning through midnight on Tuesday. Contact me via @MichaelLarabel on Twitter or MichaelLarabel.com if you would like to meet-up. Of course, if you're representing a company with a Linux focus, it must be really related to the core Phoronix content, be something especially interesting to Linux / hardware enthusiasts, and/or at least have good Bavarian beer at the booth/suite.

Stay tuned for the Linux hardware coverage of CES2012 on Phoronix next week. In the meantime you can also reminisce in older CES coverage from the days of Intel Menlow hardware to multi-million dollar entertainment systems.
