Happy New Year! This week we bring you a special Dialed In podcast live from CES in Las Vegas. Listen in to hear all the highlights of the show and a complete rundown of the nominees for Best of CES in the cell phones and smartphones category.

Palm's new Pre smartphone quickly emerged as one of the hottest items at the show, and you'll get Bonnie's full take on this intriguing device. And there are plenty of other nifty handsets on the show floor. Nicole got the chance to try on the LG Watch phone and Kent scooped out the new models from Sony Ericsson and Motorola.

Earlier in the week, Kent also went to the Macworld 2009 keynote sans Steven Jobs. For the most part it was a snoozer, but there was a bit of iPhone and iTunes news.
