CES preview: Smartphone trends to watch for this week

The iPhone doesn’t figure to be much of a newsmaker during this week’s International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. But plenty of other smartphones will vie for media attention at the massive electronics trade event.

In this video from our sister publication PCWorld, associate editor Ginny Mies takes on four trends to watch at CES this week. They include more phone makers turning to tablets, 4G LTE phones from Verizon, 4G phones on other networks, and more phones with front-facing cameras to allow for video chat. That last trend is doubtlessly inspired by the iPhone 4 and its FaceTime video conferencing capabilities. So maybe the iPhone will have some sway over the news coming out of CES after all.
