CES 2012 preview heads for the UK

We'll be getting our mitts on shiny CES gadgets two months early this year

CES – the most important expo in the tech calendar – takes Las Vegas by storm every January and we're already getting into gear for the 2012 instalment of every techie's dream trip. At CES 2011, we got our first glimpses of the B&W Zeppelin Air dock, Asus Eee Pad Slider tablet and the Casio Exilim Tryx videocam so we can't wait to see what will distract us from the bright lights and roulette tables of Vegas.

The stampede of gadget lovers will flatten the doors of CES 2012 on January 10th for the four day hands-on bonanza but for the first time some of next year's CES Innovations will be making an appearance in London two months before their official CES 2012 debut. 

The CES Unveiled preview, usually confined to New York, is set to show off as many as 20 new products on November 17th in central London. We don't know who'll be giving us a sneak peek just yet but we'll be there on the gadget frontline to get details of specs and hands-on pics.
