This IDC Insight presents our coverage of PCs, tablets, smartphones, and TVs at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Many vendors exhibited their products as part of a connected ecosystem. Devices seamlessly accessed, shared, and controlled an array of other devices. In the connected home of the future, users will be able to intuitively accomplish such tasks as controlling TVs with their tablets, manipulating household appliances with their smartphones, or accessing content from any device through any device. As devices are added into a connected home, the network effects are multiplicative, providing users a larger degree of interaction with their home ecosystem.
