Diary of a Girl Geek in Vegas – CES


On January 7th the gargantuan tech fest known as CES opens its doors in Las Vegas. Fellow Gadget Girl Ella Williamson, that’s me, will be blogging live from CES with all the latest tech trends and gadgetry.

CES promises us driverless cars, ultra HD TVs, the latest in wearable tech and some great advances in health technology as well as a whole host of other gadgets that girl geeks will love. I’ll be posting a daily diary from CES so looking forward to being in touch from Sin City.

Watch this space for the latest gadgets updates from our Gadget Girl Ella on the ground in Vegas!

Asus Google Nexus 7

nexus 7


This is a neat, compact tablet with a scratch resistant 7” display, powerful quad-core processor and up to 10 hours of battery life. It brings you the best of Google in a slim, portable device that fits perfectly in your hand or handbag for that matter.

Your Google Play library syncs automatically and with you have access to over 675,000 apps and games. The Nexus 7 also comes with some  content on it so you can start enjoying it straight out of the box too.

What I love about this tablet is that it comes with NFC  (Near Field Communication) so you can simply touch / go near other NFC supported devices to share information whether you’re sending files or streaming music or video, it’s all very quick and easy to do.

If you’re a fan of Skype the 1.2MP front facing camera is ideal for video calls and  the 5MP rear facing camera will take great photos and video too. It also features micro USB with SlimPort  so you can connect to your computer of other USB devices and display high def content on your HDTV as well. The handy headphone jack also allows you to listen to your tunes on the go.

This is a lightweight, powerful tablet and was a gift from Ladbrokes Poker to celebrate their poker site,  now available on Android.

The 16GB model will set you back around £150.
