my favorite part about CES...

Well boys and girls... After a week of not being at CES but keeping up with all the news, I gotta say there's one shift that really has me psyched... The glimmer... the hint... the waft... of the rise of Stock Android.

I know there are quite a few doubters out there who don't see the benefit of stock, and if you're down with TouchWiz or Sense, power to you, you have plenty of options, but up until now there were only as many choices for stock android as there were Nexus devices: not many.

This year we saw Nvidia's project shield and Vizio's new lineup come out with stock devices. True, the shield is an enthusiast device with a mysterious price point, and the Vizio gear seems to be going direct to China, but HEY it's something right??
