CES: For Microsoft, Much is on the Line

CES: For Microsoft, Much is on the Line

Microsoft’s CEO Steve Ballmer will likely have a lot to say about his company’s focus on the consumer when he gives the opening keynote at the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) Wednesday evening in Las Vegas.

On the list of possible candidates Ballmer may address are: the Bing search engine; the Zune HD media player; the Windows Phone operating system; the company’s pending Natal motion capture game controller for the Xbox; and at least one new deal for Microsoft’s Windows Auto software.

Also on that list will probably at least be a passing reference to Office 2010, which entered beta test in November and is due out by the end of June. Microsoft just announced packaging and pricing for Office 2010 on Tuesday in the run up to CES.
