Has television killed the mobile star? At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, at least, the focus seems to have shifted from the latest smartphones to advances in televisions; while in years past the show-stealers have included the ill-fated Palm Pre and Nokia Lumia 900, this year the biggest crowds — and all of the excited chatter — have surrounded increasingly high-definition, increasingly huge and increasingly expensive home TVs. Choosing the absolutely best display can be a bit like telling the difference between Derek Zoolander’s signature looks — “They’re all the same!” — because the screens on these latest televisions are certainly uniformly incredible and almost definitely better than the one in your rumpus room. Yes, Samsung, LG, Sharp and Sony are packing in conferene attendees, who herd in front of their latest televisions to drool at the displays that could one day show football or “New Girl” in their dens. The crowds are huge, and stationary, transfixed by screens whose colors pop like never before, thanks to a higher number of pixels.
