Google at CES

Larry Page

Google co-founder Larry Page is a keynote speaker at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas. The Los Angeles Times reports that Google has been in talks with large retail stores such as Wal-Mart to carry a computing device called the “Google Cube” running a Google customized operating system and applications. Page was a late addition to the keynote roster, so Google might actually be ready to announce something. This week will be full of announcements for sure.

Update 1/03: reports both Google and Wal-Mart denied the rumor. Google issued a statement saying “we see no need to enter that market.”

Update 1/04: Om Malik heard from “a reliable source” that Google will announce a new and improved Google video and perhaps a video distribution deal.
