Samsung, Motorola, RIM, Acer and Intel are just some of the companies angling their newest products toward holiday shoppers. Whether providing a new twist on the BlackBerry or Droid franchises, a new Android-powered e-reader from Barnes & Noble, or the chips powering new lines of netbooks and tablets, these companies hope that consumers (and maybe a few businesses) will prefer their wares over rivals in an increasingly crowded field. Mobility seems to be bigger than ever, both in terms of the actual devices-again, tablets and smartphones seem to be the most highly prized items-and the array of companies creating software or hardware to make them better. At a recent New York City event, Corning-which makes the ultra-tough Gorilla Glass now integrated onto a growing number of smartphone screens-hosted a booth near manufacturers such as Motorola. Should holiday shoppers gravitate toward these products, then manufacturers and companies of all stripes could be looking at a merry quarter, profitwise.
