The 2007 CES floor is hopping with new gadget announcements galore, and our CNET editors are out there on the show floor blogging their hearts out and capturing all the coolest and latest gadgets on video--updating us with the newest tech innovations to come this year. From a Samsung plasma TV that's wireless to HP's new TouchSmart PC which takes advantage of Windows Vista's touch-screen capability--this and so much more is all here in CNET's 2007 CES coverage. And when you're done checking out all the new drool-worthy gadgetry, make sure you stop by to vote for 2007 CES People's Voice Award--where you can vote to tell us which product you thought was the hottest and most innovative at the 2007 Consumer Electronics Show. Voting ends very soon, so get your votes in now! With all the excitement going on at CES, the big news today is not from the CES floor, but from Macworld 2007, where Steve Jobs announced the iPhone! Holy Toledo! Have you seen this phone yet? No dreaming up or conceptualizing one anymore, it's now a reality, and so sweet it is! With all the bells and whistles of the iPhone from the "multitouch" interface to the proximity sensor that senses your face and turns off the iPod and turns on phone when you bring it up to your face--it's a gadget freak's dream come true! If you haven't seen the preview of this phone yet, check it out right here. This is big news, and our members are starting to chime in on what they think of it already. So what do you think of Apple's new iPhone: are you sold on it already, or is it just another phone to you?
