Los Angeles Times: Now it starts for real. After a couple of days of pre-show hype and announcements mainly geared toward the press, the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show officially gets underway as more than 150,000 people are expected to cram into the Las Vegas Convention Center to mix, mingle and be dazzled by the latest digital goodies.

Early Tuesday, things get rolling with the keynote address by Kazuhiro Tsuga, the incoming president of Panasonic Corp. Panasonic already gave a preview of its latest Viera smart TVs on Monday.

Tsuga is expected to further elaborate on how his company will make viewing more interactive, and how it will try to tap into the second-screen phenomenon

The massive trade show floor will then open, welcoming a sea of humanity. According to the Consumer Electronics Assn., which sponsors the show, CES will draw more than 150,000 attendees, close to the 156,153 who attended last year. They get to poke and prod gadgets from more than 3,100 exhibitors across 1.862 million square feet.

They can expect to see and hear a lot about mobility, cloud, and connected devices.
