CES 2007 proves again that consumer electronics get more sophisticated every year, exceeding the expectations of even the most jaded gadget geek
LAS VEGAS (PRWEB) January 9, 2007
Retrevo demonstrated the consumer electronics industry's first dedicated vertical search engine at CES 2007 in Las Vegas, Nevada today. Retrevo is the first dedicated search engine developed specifically for pre-purchase research, shopping and post-purchase support of consumer electronics. Retrevo helps consumers check community buzz, find pre-purchase information, monitor daily deals and get product documentation for technical support and troubleshooting in twelve consumer electronics categories, including cell phones, smartphones, cameras, camcorders, home audio and home video, portable audio and portable video, printers and wireless networking (WiFi).
"CES 2007 proves again that consumer electronics get more sophisticated every year, exceeding the expectations of even the most jaded gadget geek," said Vipin Jain, founder and CEO of Retrevo. "With so many new products touting an almost infinite array of features and functions, consumers need a single source of authoritative information to help them buy, use and fix their electronics."
Retrevo is a single source for all consumer electronics information, from the latest buzz and deals to hard-to-find product documentation. Retrevo uses proprietary algorithms to crawl, collect, analyze and classify all known information for consumer electronics products. As electronic products become more complex and interconnected to other devices, Retrevo's machine learning technology performs deep content analysis, classification and retrieval, so consumers get the right answers right away.
