These are the Highlights and keynotes of the Steve Ballmer’s CES 2012 speech.

It’s really impressive to see, what is going on in Computer, OS, Phone, Game, Game Console and Entertainment industry.

They showed us first the New Windows Phones, especially the ones who are been launched today in the USA and elsewhere; The Nokia Lumia 710 & 900, the HTC Titan with an impressive 16 Megapixel camera and also the HTC Radar.

They showed the use of the New Windows phones the apps and so on, how to use them.

Last December 2011 Microsoft launched the New Xbox Dashboard; the feeling of Windows 8 is all integrated in Xbox 360 Dashboard. The New Apps where also launched, we see Bing as main future for search into Xbox Dashboard. Voice control is now the option to choose between a controller or using the Kinect for input. You know can choose what you want to use as input.

We saw also the New Windows 8 and also for the PC you can choose of a diversity of Input, Keyboard, Mouse, Touch or Kinect. Also amazing to see how fast it worked.

HTML 5 is fast and direct especially in the apps what they showed and in the coming Windows 8, its working power is amazing, live streaming not loading first, direct available.

All the important things directly accessible not needed to start up the apps (Application) but direct available.

Imagine when Kinect is coming to the PC and what you can do, they showed also the new opportunities where you can use the Kinect for.

They showed us also the interactive TV through Xbox Kinect, Sessamestreet workshop showed the interactive Sessamestreet it was awesome to watch how children can actually play or interact along with the broadcast, it was amazing.

The Kinect Voice control through the Xbox 360 is amazing, you don’t need your controller anymore and you can input the characters through voice recognition. WOW I’ve been using this already on my Xbox 360 Kinect, it makes it so easy to search for something or to launch an apps.

This was an impressive speech of Microsoft CEO with the help of his team to show the features of the New Gadgets and OS. I’m still following the CES 2012 it will be ‘til the 13th of January.
